Harold and the Purple CrayonAs soon as a child can hold a crayon or pencil, he or she naturally wants to put marks on paper (or anything else!). By watching adults write children understand very early that the lines on a paper mean something. Young children will pretend “write” on paper and ask, “what does this say?”

Provide lots of scribble paper, pencils, pens, markers and crayons! Children can also practice writing letters in a pan full of salt or flour or rice…even shaving cream!
