Hey, I’m Natasha from Tiny Tots Adventures where I share learning activities that I do with my preschool aged kid. Today I’m here to share a preschool writing activity that I’ve recently done with my preschooler. My preschooler has been very interested in writing lately. We have been doing a lot of letter tracing, but with the weather feeling so nice, I decided to take the letter tracing outside.
- Sidewalk chalk in different colors (we used six colors, only I used the white chalk)
- Go outside
- Draw the upper and lower case of a few letters in one color of chalk on the sidewalk.
- Have your preschooler trace over your letters from top to bottom and left to right.
- Have them repeat this action using every color for each letter.
After we were done tracing the letters we played something like hop on the letter game. She would stand on an empty square and I’d call out the letter. She then runs to the letter and hop on it. She then walks the letter from top to bottom and left to right.
This activity was a little easier for her to do then working on paper. The size of the sidewalk chalk and the size that I drew the letters aided in making this a hands on experience with writing. So that I could get her to pay closer attention to the structure of the letters.
My preschooler enjoyed tracing and walking the chalk letters.
