20+ Name Activities and Crafts for Toddlers and Preschoolers

Teaching a child their name can be overwhelming and frustrating at times. I have found that making the process fun for the child helps out a lot. It keeps me from being frustrated and it gives them some learning fun sometimes without them even knowing it. And if you read this blog then you know that I am all for activities that they can have fun while learning.

So as requested by a few of you I went on the hunt for some name activities and crafts.Most of these are cost effective, because you know I wont suggest it if I have to pay too much to do an activity. I had some specific requests for sensory, fine motor skill work, and just letter recognition for name learning. Some great bloggers have shared their best name activities and crafts with me and I went through and tried to pick the ones that were asked for and included some others that I think were just freaking cool and I know my kids want to try. So without further ado…
