Here are some nice ideas for practising how to make letter shapes. Paper and pencil is only one way of doing this and the short video below will show you some more ways. You can use anything you have in the house such as flour, shaving foam, lentils or even stones to make the letters in your name. Make the letter shape and then keep going over it using your finger until you are more confident. If your child is unsure then take their finger and move it with them until they can do it on their own.
Another idea is to search for the letters in your name in magazines etc and then cut them out and arrange them to spell out your name.
