Activity: Name Stenciling 

In our craft supply area we have a box full of old stencil templates (I think they used to be used for bulletin boards, but aren’t anymore). I give each child a sheet of paper, then put the stencils, pencils, and markers on the table. The children can pick out the letters of their names to trace or color in, practice writing their names, or even just play with the letter shapes. This is the open-ended type of activity I like to do quite a bit with this storytime.
