There are many ways children can learn their letters, and playing with them is a really fun way to learn.Try writing letters on their back and have them guess what the letter is, and have them do the same to you. Or try having them writing their name in the sand at the playground. These activities are kinesthetic and multi-sensory, meaning that the brain is learning the shapes of the letters not only from how they look, but how they feel. By learning letters this way, children will have fewer mix-ups between letters that look alike, like b and d, or p and q.

Here are a few more activites:
-Try forming letters with string
-Walk on a rope that is in the shape of a letter
-Throw and catch lightweight balls to improve hand-eye coordination
