# Name Activities

## Here are some activities that your child could do at home to practice identifying their name.

• writing their name in shaving cream
• spelling their name with magnetic letters
• painting their name with a paintbrush or fingerpaint
• an adult/older sibling could write the child’s name in highlighter or yellow marker and the child could trace their name with a marker (same color or rainbow write – rainbow write is each letter is a different color of the rainbow) or with glitter glue.
• an adult/older sibling could write the child’s name and cut out each letter and have the child put their name back together like a puzzle
• matching their name with post-its or notecards
• dot stickers – plain

• or with the letters of their name on them
• write the names of all of the family members and have everyone find their name
