Name recognition is an extremely important skill. Most children learn best during playtime, so I created this fun name recognition game. You can print out the file for free and let your child enjoy the game over and over again.
Ice Cream Name Game
- Ice-Cream Game Printable
- Pens, Pencils, Crayons, or Markers
Start by printing out the free printable. Next, cut out each item. If your little one is old enough to use scissors, you can let them do the cutting. Once it is all cut out, help your child write their name on the ice cream cone. After that, write each letter of their name on the individual scoops of ice cream. My daughter is already able to recognize and spell her name, so she did all the writing. If your child is younger and just starting the process of learning their name, you can write their name for them.
Once the prep work is done, the fun can begin! Have your child use the ice cream scoops to spell their name. They can start from either the bottom of the cone and build up or start with the first letter of their name and move down towards the cone. My daughter did it both ways and had a lot of fun.
To make the pieces from this fun game last longer, you can laminate them.
