Children and parents will go on a nature walk to collect items such as sticks, grass, flowers, leaves, etc. to use in forming the child’s name.
As a family, go on a nature walk around your neighborhood or at a nearby park. As you walk, help your child collect some items to use to form his name, such as sticks, leaves, grass, flowers, etc. Talk about each item when he finds it and why he chose it.
When you get back home, help your child write his name in large letters on a piece of paper. Then allow him to glue the nature items on top of the lines and curves of the letters of his name. As he works, help your child name the letters in his name. Talk about each letter in his name and whether it has straight lines, curved lines, or both. When he finishes forming his name, point to each letter and name it together. Explain to him that when these letters are put together, it spells his name.
