Young children need plenty of opportunities to recognize and form letters before they can become proficient at writing them. Since the fine motor dexterity to form letters on paper sometimes doesn’t come until late in the preschool years, creativity is key! When an activity blends multiple domains of early childhood development, this helps to engage your child even more. Here are just a few preschool letter activities for teaching letter recognition and letter formation in a fun and engaging way!
Attach several pieces of ribbon or yarn to one end of a dowel rod. Let your little one create the letters in the air using the “magic wand.”
