I have seen this lesson posted on many sites before, but always thought it looked complicated. However, after seeing wonderful step by step instructions on Art Lessons From Belgium, I decided it was time to try this with my fourth graders.
This lesson wasn't hard at all, and I ended up with wonderful results. The hardest part was getting the students to write their name large enough. If they do not write their name large, the letters will not connect to each other. If you need detail directions, they are on Art Lessons from Belgium.
I think these turned out great.
