It is very important your child's fingers and hands are strong enough to write.
Please see the 'Physical Development' page for ways you can support your child with finger/hand strengthening activities.
Practise writing your name. Make sure you start your letters in the correct place. Try writing your name in the mud, in sand, in soap bubbles, in foam, using paint or chalk.
