Few days ago, I printed some free handwriting practise worksheet template which I found online and started letting our girl write on it.

Picture on left - when you left her on her own to write her name...
Picture on right - when I stayed right next to her and kept on reminding her to stay within the 2 lines as she writes her name...

It was so frustrating to me to see her trying to grasp the concept of writing in between the 2 lines. So, that day, I had to crack my brain and think of how to get our kiddos to learn and remember better. And today I'm sharing my personal DIY trick in getting our 4 year old girl to write in between the lines. I used the empty side of a postcard and made 2 boxes. One square box and one slim rectangular box like below. Then I use a loytape to tape all around the edge of the boxes.

I then let our girl used it. Works so much better and easier! I love it!

Of course there are so many other ways online if you googled for it, but the above is my personal DIY trick which is working for now. I will keep my options open for other tricks as well if this trick stop working hahahaha but until then, I am loving what I'm seeing!
