Take away the fear that your child will lose the ability to write over the holidays by giving them fun writing activities that make the return back to school easy.
Congratulations, you’ve made it through the school year and now a summer of family fun can start.
Your child has worked hard over the academic year and they’re where they need to be in terms of their handwriting. They have mastered letter formations, sizing ,word spacing and sentence writing. However you also know your child. A little bit of extra practice will do them no harm. Now is not the time to take off the brakes because there is always that risk that if you don’t use it, they’ll lose it.
Your child is too savvy to be given daily practice worksheets, that’ll feel too much like school work. It would just not cut the mustard. The only thing that will entice them are age-appropriate challenging, but not too challenging, fun games where they need no handholding or guidance. They can just go off and do them by themselves. Yes, they’ll be coming-back to test your ability to spot the lies they have written or show you the amusement park they have designed.
The summer holiday handwriting pack has been cleverly designed for 8 to 10-year-olds who want to have a lot of fun in their summer holidays and whose parents wish them to keep practising the handwriting. A perfect match!

How it works. . .
The summer programme was a great way for my 9 year old son to keep his new skills fresh over the break and fun enough for him not to feel as though it was a chore. I was really impressed with the variety of different exercises Sheilagh had come up with, which were much more engaging, and targeted, than the traditional handwriting practice books we had tried and failed to complete before (Amy, Mum of Walt, age 9)
Yay schools out!
However, it does not mean that everything needs to be stopped and forgotten. A frantic catch-up time just before the kids go back will not be needed this year if you do this summer holiday handwriting pack.
Handwriting is a skill that needs continuous practice. Skills are never forgotten but it does help to keep them being used rather than a 6-week break. What handwriting does not need to be is boring. Mazes help develop pencil control and visual perpetual skills. Writing words by solving puzzles or writing sentences on ‘Would you Rather?’ help keep it interesting.
We’re here to bring back the fun into the summer. Long gone are the days of doing repetitive worksheets. They have been replaced with writing activities that will intrigue, excite and please your child.
