Name Collage

Materials Needed:
· Construction paper
· Scissors
· Glue
· Magazines
· Newspapers

This is a great activity to help your child learn to read and write. She'll be learning pre-reading skills, using her small-motor skills, and enhancing her creativity.

What to Do:

1. Have your child draw and cut out each letter in her name from large pieces of construction paper.

2. Have her look in the magazines and newspapers for pictures and words that describe her hobbies, likes, family, talents, favorite school subjects, and foods.

3. Glue the pictures on the letters to create her own personalized collage.

4. Hang the finished project on the refrigerator or on the door to her room.
