When kids are first learning to form letters, I love giving them a variety of ways to do it. It prevents boredom, makes letter forming a positive experience, and promotes creativity. Check out our seven ways to make the letter H!
We also made an “H” with heart stickers. My daughter (5) created her wobbly H without a framework, but for younger kids you might want to use the giant H or just draw a light line for them to place their stickers on.
This was fun for my Four. We drew a letter “H” on the play dough with a plastic knife, and he used a straw to poke holes all the way through.
We used our wooden box frame (from an old toy) and put in a thin layer of colored sand. It’s my Four’s favorite way to make letters.
After all the fun ways he gets to create letters, my Four doesn’t even complain when he finally has to write them. We haven’t advanced to regular handwriting pages yet. You can get a copy of his page (as well as more challenging handwriting worksheets) by visiting this page.
