Use Family Games to Practice Handwriting

Who says that handwriting practice has to be boring?!
There are so many family games that handwriting practice can be easily incorporated into, such as Bananagrams! Bananagrams is similar to Scrabble but is played without a game board. Both of these games are great for visual perceptual skills, spelling practice, and fine motor skills!
  • Create your Bananagram “board” either together, or separately, and see how many words you can come up with.
  • Every time you make a word, have your child write it down to create a list.
  • Have a more advanced writer? Encourage your child to come up with a sentence that includes one or multiple of the Bananagrams words!
