Start by drawing a letter as big as you can on a sheet of paper. A great letter to start with when working on recognition is the one’s your child’s name starts with. Other great letters are those of siblings, m for mommy, d for daddy, etc.
Prepare long strips of colored paper and then let your child get some scissor practice cutting them into chunks. Depending on age this will look very different, even if it’s not pretty, it’s ok, they’re learning! For littler guys let them rip the paper into chunks.
Then trace the letter with glue and have your child cover every little bit of glue with chunks of paper. Remember that you are working on recognition so don’t forget to talk about the letter as you go.
