A fun way to practice name recognition

Yesterday my three year old found some glitter containers floating around our house. Thank goodness they weren’t opened! She really wanted to use glitter, so we headed outside and turned it into a learning activity to get her ready for preschool this fall.

All I did was write out her name in marker on a piece of construction paper, trace it with glue, and hand the glitter over. Jenna made many, many, many versions of this. Sometimes of the papers had her name on them, some said “Dad”. I tried to confuse her, but she was on to my tricks!

P.S. This activity would also work with beans.
