Rainbow Letters

ages 3-6


Construction paper, crayons, marker for drawing initial letter(s).

Activity Detail

This helps kids learn directionality in forming letters and can help reinforce name writing. On a piece of construction paper write the first letter of your child's name with a dark marker. First have your child trace the letter with her finger, using the correct formation sequence. You can draw direction arrows if you wish. Have a rainbow array of crayons for your child to trace the letter with. If she is tracing the letter correctly, she will be building muscle memory and fine motor skills and increasing writing stamina. Next move on to the next letter of the name until each one is mastered. Then your can make a beautiful rainbow name to hang on the fridge or in a frame!

It would also work for the parent to draw an outline of the letters so that the child can use the crayons to draw the letter inside the outlines, thus filling the letters with color!
