Introduce your child to the letters in their name with this simple craft.

10 minutes
24 - 60 months
Group size
1 - 8 tots


  • 2 pieces Construction paper
  • 1 Glue stick
  • 1 pair Scissors
  • 1 box Crayons


  1. Before you begin, cut out the letters of your child's name. You can print them with a computer or trace them. I traced the letters from an iPod ABC game.
  2. If your child loves to color, use blank paper for their letters. If not, choose brightly colored or patterned paper for their name.
  3. Before you begin glueing, show your child the letter and tell them each letter and how it fits into their name: "This is A. A and I together say 'ai' for Airen."
  4. Allow your child to explore the letters and color them as they wish.
  5. Pull out the glue stick and a blank piece of construction paper. Show them how to glue the back of the letter and put them on the paper.
  6. Help them place the letters in the correct order.
  7. Allow them to color and decorate as they wish.
