- Give your toddler writing utensils (crayons, markers, pencils, etc.) and pretend to write grocery lists, shopping lists, traffic tickets, thank you notes or even love notes.
- Provide opportunities for your toddler to create while learning new skills. Have your child explore with finger paint, shaving cream, sand or playdough to help develop fine-motor skills necessary for writing.
- Have your toddler use tongs or tweezers to pick up cotton balls or pom poms. It’s a great fine motor exercise used to get your child’s hand muscles ready for writing.
