Ways to encourage your preschooler to write

If you want to encourage your preschooler to start learning to write, it is important that it not seem like hard work to him or her, but more like a game.


If you want to encourage your preschooler to start learning to write, it is important that it not seem like hard work to him or her, but more like a game. Kids are all about having fun, so making writing fun is essential to the development of writing skills. Helping your child through the initial phases of learning to write should be fun as well. Assisting your little one through the first step, which is the generation of an idea, can involve games that will excite and inspire your child.


If your entire family is quite techie, try a Kindle or an iPad. Many preschoolers learn writing and art using the latest in technology. On the other hand, if you prefer old school, just a pad of paper will suffice. Where adult writers may fear the blank page, kids thrive on it and see it as fun to fill up with scribbles and eventually with words.Integrating some writing into everyday play can help creative ideas to flow for your child. Provide plenty of writing instruments to inspire your preschooler. Kids are attracted to bright colors and sparkly things, so try to think like they do. Colorful crayons, pencils and shiny metallic paper can help keep their interest. A white board can be fun for a preschooler since they can scribble all over it and then wipe it clean and start again. A well-placed chalkboard, whether on the wall or on the desktop, can be lots of fun for your preschooler as well. You can even buy special paint for one wall, or part of a wall, in your child's bedroom that actually creates a chalkboard surface. 

If you really want your preschooler to learn to write and possibly even start launching his or her artistic tendencies, consider buying the right kids bedroom furniture for a good start. Many parents think that just giving their preschooler games, a box of crayons and some pencils will be sufficient inspiration, but nothing inspires quite like a well-chosen children’s desk set. The right setting can be as important as the right encouragement and tools. It's a well-known fact that all writers are affected by their environment and this goes double for little ones who are just learning to write. Making a special spot in their room for writing will not only make them feel important, but will also serve to help them to concentrate on what they are learning.

So, whether your preschooler learns with crayons, chalk, pencils or high tech gadgets, just make sure that he or she has a dedicated space in their own room by using great kids bedroom furniture and a children's desk set to help you set the stage for your preschooler's learning and creativity.
