Who knew handwriting could be so much fun? Noted author Rachelle Doorley, the creative force behind Tinkerlab, presents 22 fun step-by-step projects that guide kids in cursive creativity using an array of different materials—piper cleaners, yarn, aluminum foil, polymer clay, icing, and more.
As many educators will attest, writing in cursive provides cognitive benefits in spelling, memory, reading comprehension, language skills, and overall academic confidence. Practicing cursive carries similar benefits when drawing; once you learn the basic shapes, you can play with it by creating your own personal style.
