Kids turn their names into works of art with this name art activity!

What You'll Need:

  • Pencil
  • Paper
  • Pencil or crayons

Step One: Print your first name in large, neat letters. Now take a long look at them. What does the shape of each letter remind you of? A small letter b might be a baseball with a bat standing next to it.

Step Two: A capital S might be a snake or a pair of monkey arms. Kids can try turning each letter into an object or animal so that their names look like the things that interest them.

Step Three: Encourage kids to do the same thing with your their last names, and even other people's names.

Create cards of wonder with your kids that they can send to their favorite authors. Read about this writing activity on the next page.
