A great way to teach preschoolers the alphabet is by starting with the letters in their name! Creating a Name Bracelet with alphabet beads is a fun way for preschoolers to learn the letters of their name and practice fine motor skills.

Name Bracelet Fine Motor Activity
This activity started as a simple black bean and alphabet bead sensory bin! But then I had the idea to use the beads to create name bracelets with one extra craft supply!
How to Set Up:
Set up a sensory bin with black beans and alphabet letters. Include pipe cleaners on the side and invite the children to search through the sensory bin for the letters in their name! Once the kids have found all the letter beads they need to spell their name they can create a bracelet by threading the beads onto the pipe cleaners and twisting the pipe cleaner together to create a bracelet.
Preschoolers will love playing and creating with this simple activity! Plus they will be reminded of the letters in their name every time they show off their new bracelet! 🙂
