Step #1: Using a marker, simply write your child’s name on a word strip – leaving a small amount of spacing between each letter.
Step #2: Use scissors to cut the letters apart – any design will do! You can be as simple or as creative as you like!
Step #3: Mix up the letters and work with your child to put the puzzle back together. This activity can be adjusted for just about any age/developmental stage.
My kids have loved doing this activity over and over again, and because I didn’t want any of the pieces to go missing, I gave each of them a labeled plastic bag to use for storage.
In our kitchen area, each of my kids has their own Activity Basket where they keep any coloring books, activity books, doodle pads, etc. that they’re working in.
This system has been the key to my being able to cook dinner as daddy makes his way home from the office.
