Most children learn to recognize the letters in their name first. Here is a cheap, easy, and fun way to promote knowledge of the letters in your child’s name.
Activity: Playdough Name Puzzle
- Letter cookie cutters
Roll out playdough and cut out your child’s name.
Roll out a contrasting color of playdough and cut it out again.
(You could just do it with one color but we liked it better with a contrasting color).
Having a “puzzle” to fill in helps avoid confusions with directionality!! (As we had BEFORE I thought of making a name puzzle).
Logan really enjoyed putting the pieces in over and over and over and over!
