Name Stencil

writing practice name stencil

We have been spending as much time as possible outside lately. I’m pretty sure my one year old would live outside if he could. Because of this, we have been finding fun ways to bring learning outside. This name stencil activity is a fun way to work on identifying letters in your kid’s name and also practice writing letters.

How I Made This Name Stencil

First, I drew out the letters of my son’s name with a pen. 

Next, I used a box cutter to cut out the letters.

Then, I traced the letters with markers to make the activity more inviting.

How To Play

To play, I first rolled out a long piece of craft paper outside. I then taped the stencil to the paper to keep it from moving. Finally, I gave my son markers to use with the stencil to write his name.

This is a great idea. You could do this with sight words too with older kids. I love how big the stencil is.

This could be a great idea for teaching my toddler the letters of his name. I got so many unused boxes and I now have something to do with them.
