School is just about out for summer, but that doesn’t mean the learning has to stop! If your child is starting to learn handwriting, this is a great activity to help practice and hone in on their skills. Not to mention, this is another great way to use your favorite RoseArt materials!

You need limited supplies for this project – just a piece of paper, scissors, and a writing utensil. After that, gather your favorite RoseArt items for decorating. I grabbed my RoseArt Broadline Markers, Tempura Paints, and Crayons.

To start, fold the paper in half lengthwise. Have your child practice writing his or her name on the paper. Be sure that the name is nice and big, covering the length of the paper.

Carefully cut around the name. When you open it up, you have an outline of your little critter!

Now here’s the fun part! Take your RoseArt supplies and start decorating! There is no right or wrong way to do this, just have fun!

Once kids are done with this project, they can also try writing other names or words that come to mind. You’ll notice that they are having so much fun decorating, they don’t even realize that they are learning to write in the process! Have fun and enjoy!
