Fine Motor Name Practice

Roo is enjoying his summer break, but I intend to send him back to school on track. I don't want him to lose any of the skills he developed last year at school and I want to send him back with a whole new set!

We try to do a variety of things, like dot to dots, writing, sight words and refreshing on colors, shapes, letters, numbers and etc. Several days a week. I like to give him chances to further develop his fine motor skills while having fun spelling his name.

To do this activity you will need:
Foam Sheets (I get them in a multi pack at Wal-Mart or Dollar Tree)
Foam sticker letters that spell your childs name, you might want to have letters to do this 2 or 3 times on one foam sheet.

To get my son started I simply peeled a tiny edge back for him so that he could work on getting the backing of the sticker off. These foam letters were pretty cheap and even I had a hard time peeling them, so I guess we both got some fine motor work in on this one!

I told him he was going to spell his name, but I wanted him to sound each letter out as he placed it on the foam sheet.

Roo did pretty well with this activity, it took about 5 minutes to put together and complete and it gave him a chance to practice 2 skills!


  1. What a great little task.
    I personally love dot to dots still to this day too, I know his love of them.

  2. This is a cool activity. I also keep my kids doing educational things during the breaks.

  3. Great activity, we did this with Isabella when she was younger.


Thanks for leaving me a comment sweet stuff! I am always glad to hear from you!
