Preschool Activities: Rainbow Writing

By Tiffany Rudd

Sometimes the best way for a child to learn a skill is repetition. The problem is, repetition can be super boring. RAINBOW WRITING is a great trick for turning repetitive writing into a fun art project. 
First, write the word or letter you want your child to practice in pencil. Then have her trace over the word using a crayon. Have her choose a new color and trace over the word again. Then a new color and trace over the word again. Then a new color . . . anyway, you get the idea. :) Let her trace as many times as she wants to create a beautiful rainbow word. She wont even know she is really practicing her writing over and over again! 
This is a great way to have your child learn and practice his/her name. While Brooklyn was rainbow writing her name I also had her call out each letter. That way she wasn’t just practicing her letters, she was memorizing the order of the letters in her name.
