Preschooler Name Recognition Door Sign

August 25, 2016

Every kiddo needs their very own name on their door, after all – it’s their name – it’s special to them! So why not kill two birds with one stone and incorporate a little bit of learning in with a fun, easy, mess-free craft and create your own special personalised preschooler name recognition door sign?

All you need for this name recognition craft is a few sheets of coloured paper, some scissors, some glue, a sheet of A4 paper and a pen.

Grab some scissors and cut up some squares from coloured paper – if your child is able to do this themselves, excellent! If not, ripping up the paper works just as well and is equally as fun. Work those little hand and finger muscles and hone those fine motor skills, these come in handy when it’s time to start writing!

On a sheet of A4 paper, write your child’s name in big, clear letters, making sure the letters are spaced far enough apart from each other to stick the colourful paper over the top without them all overlapping. It’s important to make sure all the letters are still going to be easily identifiable by your preschooler once the door sign is finished.

Using a glue stick (PVA glue would work just as well) individually stick the colourful squares of paper over the letters. While doing this, you can talk about the letters and their sounds, spell out your preschooler’s name, think of some other words that begin with the first letter etc – it’s a fun and carefree way of introducing letter recognition and spelling without any pressure.

Once all the glueing and sticking is done, leave the glue to dry and you’ll be left with a lovely colourful personalised home made door sign! Attach to your child’s bedroom door, for extra glam, use some colourful or patterned washi tape. Or you could continue to customise it with sequins, glitter or anything else that takes your fancy.

    Great idea. My kids don’t have their names on the door so will have to change this!
