Name Mosaic

ages 2-5


Pen or pencil, variety of colors of construction paper, safety scissors, glue

Activity Detail

Write your child's name on a piece of paper in large block letters. Have her use safety scissors to cut several colors of construction paper into small pieces (you can do this part for younger children). Next have her decorate her name by gluing the scraps of paper onto the block letters. Let your child help you choose a special place to display her name mosaic. This project is great for building hand strength, working on hand-eye coordination, and developing this all-important fine motor skills

Awesome idea! With all of the neat patterned and textured papers available out there, this will be a big hit in our house. What a great way to reduce, reuse and recycle, too!

This activity is great since it relies on materials most people already have at home. It also encourages a number of skills so it has the whole multi-tasking thing going for it too. The activity could be taken one step further for older kids, who could be encouraged to write their names in block letters on their own, rather than relying on you to do it as stated in the instructions.
