By the time a child enters kindergarten, they NEED to know how to write their name. A 2 year old can recognize their name & learn the letter names & sounds. Some can even write it that young. Start teaching them early. Don't put it off!
Here is one EASY craft to help teach a child learn to recognize & eventually write their name:
What you'll need: Construction paper, glue & fine sand.
QUICK & EASY!!
-Put the sand into a cup.
-Write the child's name with the glue on the construction paper saying the name of each letter as you go.
-Give the child the cup of sand and let them pour the sand, making sure it covers all the glue.
-Pick up the paper and funnel the excess sand back into the cup or onto a plate (or back into the sandbox).
