Make a Name Puzzle
Preschoolers are the kings and queens of scribble scrabble. While their “words” don’t quite make sense yet, all that scribbling means that they’re starting to understand that written letters have meaning. You can help your child make the leap to the next level—understanding that letters put together in a certain order make words—by working with a sure-to-be favorite: your child’s own name.
What You Need:
- An envelope
- Two strips of paper (about 9-12 inches in length)
- A red magic marker, and a black magic marker
