Learning to wrote your name can get repititive and boring! This activity brightens up the repitition and also works in some motior skill practice.


We recommend using our Micador Junior Triangle Graphite Pencils FSC 100% - HB, as the traingular barrel encourages correct writing grip.


You will need:

  • Printable Rainbow Cloud Template
  • A4 Drawing paper
  • Micador Junior Triangle Graphite Pencils, HB
  • Two-tone colour paper
  • Scissors
  • Glue Stick

Step 1: Print and cut

Print out and cute out the Rainbow Cloud Template provided as a download above. Then cut some coloured paper into 3cm wide strips - you will need the same amount of strips as there are letters in your name. So 'Sam' would need 3 coloured strips!

Step 2: Glue

Apply some glue to the tops of the coloured strips and then secure to the back of the cloud template that you have just cut out.

Step 3: Write

Write your name in the cloud. Remember to start your name with a capital letter.

Step 4:

Write one letter of your name on each coloured strip. If you have lots of letters in your name and the strips don't fit, you can try writing out you entire name on 6 different coloured strips.
