If your kids are anything like mine, they stomp their feet and are full of protests when it’s time to practice handwriting. I get it; writing letters over and over can get super boring. Thankfully, that’s not the only way to practice.
Round up your art supplies and get your kids excited to work on their handwriting with these skill-building exercises that also double as fun activities.
