Preschool Writing Activities
This is great fun for preschoolers to practice writing the lines and curves that make up the letters of the alphabet. Use black paper, and sidewalk chalk, soaked in water, to make the colors more vibrant.
We are about to embark on a focus of learning to really write letters well with my 4 year old. Up until now, he’s been copying from things he sees, can write his first name, but we haven’t really focused on it unless he asked me how to specifically write something.
I drew different types of strokes and swirls and lines on my paper, some taken from our Handwriting Without Tears preschool book. He would not have stayed interested for nearly as long if I had pulled out that workbook, but brightly colored chalk on paper? The possibilities were endless!
My 7-year-old daughter got involved, too, creating a stack of masterpieces. This is good for her as well, as she has some fine motor delays that affect her handwriting.
