Kids Love Names

I have noticed that kids love their names! My little girl becomes absolutely gleeful just seeing the letters: A L A N A. One exciting project for preschoolers involves printing out the letters of the child’s name and then having him or her put the letters in order to create first names, middle names, and/or last names. Making learning into a game is key for children, as learning should be linked with pure fun! You can also have your child color each letter as another project, which stresses motor skills and the recognition of colors.

You can go to the following websites for some possible printouts of letters. Some letters, as you will see, are simple, while others are more complex:

1) Your Child Learns
2) Alphabet Soup
3) Crayola
