Description

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.

Creative Adventures in Cursive shows you how to use cursive as a wonderful means of self-expression with these and more photo-illustrated projects:

Create your own bullet journal
Embroider initials on a cloth napkin
Paint inspiring messages on rocks
Write your name in 3-D with yarn and pipe cleaners
Craft a foil doorplate with repousse (pushed up) letters
Make a pop-up greeting card

Cursive is fun, and the adventure begins here.
