Outline Name Space:Kids can trace the name, color the name, or rainbow write the name. They can fill the name with play dough coils, beads, small erasers, buttons, etc.

Blank Space: This is a blank space where kids can use letter squares (included with this set), magnetic letters, letter rocks, letter beads, etc. to build the name.
