We have all encountered kids uninterested in writing or learning their letters. They push back when the writing time comes.

Consider this: You hand them a craft instead of lined paper and ask them to assemble a pretty flower. They oblige because it sounds like a fun activity, and they can show off! Part of the craft involves putting the letters of their name in order. They don’t think anything of it because they don’t have to do any writing.

Without even realizing it, they are working on spelling their name. They will see the letters and have help putting them in order. Over time, and with plenty of practice, they will be more motivated to write the letters of their name. Their interest in writing will only grow from there!

The bottom line is that name-writing crafts are a great stepping stone to writing!

What is a Name Craft?

A name craft is a cute activity in which students put pieces of an object together. Some pieces hold the letters of their name, and they complete the craft by adding the letters.

These crafts always make wonderful keepsakes for parents or cute decorations for bulletin boards.

When to Use the Flower Name Craft

The flower name craft is perfect for spring when you are learning about flowers! Teach kids about the life cycle of flowers and invite them to make their own paper flower. Adding the element of name spelling is just icing on the cake.

Use the craft to work on fine motor skills during morning work time. Add them to morning work tubs or have a station set up for them to complete the activity independently.

This craft is also wonderful for working on the letter F as you go through the alphabet. Kids will recognize that flower starts with F and comment on that fact everytime it comes up.

Use the craft in conjunction with books or videos about flowers in the spring and summertime. You can even plant little marigold flowers in bags or small pots for the kids to check out.

There are tons of ways to use this craft!!
