When Mia first started preschool, they taught her how to write her name by tracing letters. It was important to me to practice at home in a fun and creative way. One time, we made briefcase treats for Dad, and this time, during a play date with her best friend, I had the girls make St. Patrick’s Day cards. These two always ask me to make a craft when they are here at my house (I wonder why?) and so I killed two birds with one stone by turning their craft into a Preschool Card Writing Kids Activity.
Here’s what I used:
- Green Cardstock
- Markers or crayons
- Glue Sticks
- St. Patrick’s Day Stickers
I first folded the cards for the girls and used a pencil to dot out “Happy St. Patty’s Day” on the front and their names inside the card. I know I know! It’s not perfect (I was kind of in a hurry at the time)! I gave them to the girls and they traced them with their green markers.
They also embellished their cards with stickers and glued on green pompoms.
They were both so proud of each other, checking out each other’s creations. Mia decided to give hers to Becca’s Dad and Becca gave hers to her Mom.
Practicing writing can be fun if you do it creatively, especially for three and a half years old! Consider doing it for any holiday or special occasion. Practice makes perfect!
