It’s Celebrate Your Name Week! And what better way to celebrate than with a few easy name crafts?

Using a 4" x 6" photo book, create a booklet with each family member’s name, placing a corresponding photo on the back of the previous page. Quiz your toddler on each family member, helping them recognize family (and their own) names as you go.

Preschoolers won’t be able to get enough of this one. Bake some letter-shaped cookies, or write letters on cookies, and have them practice spelling their names.

Different colored strips of paper are all you need for this easy lesson in spelling. Cut them at increasing lengths so that once they overlap, one more letter is exposed as you go.
