Mastery of the pre-writing shapes is an essential part of a child’s development towards efficient handwriting.
These activities will support your child's development with the pre-writing shapes.
Play with shaving foam
Cover a surface with shaving foam, use your index finger to imitate, copy, trace or draw the pre writing shapes. Also try this activity on a vertical plane (perhaps a tile wall while in the bath) to strengthen your arm and shoulder movements.
This activity could be done on a table, easel or by taping paper to the wall. Cover the paper with paint and then use your fingers to imitate, copy, trace or draw the pre writing shapes.
