Art Idea # 3- Name activities

1. Write your child's name in white crayon on white paper. Let your child use watercolors to paint on the paper and their name will appear.

2. Write your child's name on paper in black marker. Let your child paint over lines of their name with water on a paint brush (or use a q-tip). The underlying colors will "bleed" out of the black marker into the individual colors.

3. Write your child's name on paper with a black marker. Give your child small craft material, cereal, noodles, beads, pieces of paper, etc. to glue onto the lines to create a 3 dimensional name.

4. Remember when you teach your child to write their name, use an upper case letter for the first letter and lower case letters for the rest of the letters. That way they don't have to relearn how to write their name when they get to kindergarten.
