If you have letter stickers lying around or if you have to buy some at the store this is a great way to help your child learn how to spell their name. We dumped all the stickers out on the table and for each name we practiced my daughter had to find the letters to make the name. My 4 year old knows all the letters in her name and the order they go in so she had no problem finding the stickers of her name. For her brother I wrote his name on a post it and had her search for the letters and spell it out. Finally, we sounded out MOM and DAD and she had to tell me the letter for each sound and spell them out.
This activity also helped with fine motor skills by using those little fingers to peel off the backing of the stickers!
