craft sticks (you can paint them or leave them natural)
construction paper in various colours
markers or pencil crayons
1. Trace squares onto the construction paper.
2. Ask your preschooler to write a letter of their name onto each square. If this is too challenging, you can use dots to outline the letter and ask your child to trace them.
3. Make the "tracks" on your paper by breaking up popsicle or craft sticks and glue them horizontally and vertically.
4. Help your child glue their letters in the right order, as the cars on the train. You can even join them with a line when you're done.
Once you master your child's first name, try to do this activity with your other family names or last name!
