NAME LETTER ACTIVITIES
 

MASKING TAPE NAMES
Use masking tape to print your child’s name on the top of a table.
Have your child trace over the letters with their fingers, while you say the name of each letter.
 
NAME RUBBINGS
Using the masking tape letters above, give your child a large piece of paper to lay on top of the letters.
Next, give him a large peeled crayon.
Show him how to lay the crayon sideways and rub the crayon across the paper to make a print of his name.
 
COVERING NAME LETTERS

Give your child some small object and have her cover the masking tape letters with objects.
Examples: Cherrios, raisins, cottonballs.
Laying the objects on the letters will give your child the feel of the letters for beginning writing.
 
COOKED SPAGETTI NAMES
Give your child some cooked spaghetti.
Show him how to use the spaghetti to form letters in his name.
 
PLAY DOUGH NAMES

Give your child some play dough.
Show her how to make long ropes out of the dough.
Finally, show her how to fashion the ropes into the letters of her name.
