Drawing Through the Alphabet Letter S

    Drawing Through the Alphabet is a fun way for children to work on forming letters, use fine motor skills to draw lines and curves, and reinforce beginning letter sounds like in this S is for Snail tutorial.

    1. S is for Snail! Start with the letter S.
    2. Each step of the tutorial shows you a detail to add in red. If your child wants you to do it for them, have your child pick up the crayon and put your hand over theirs and draw it together instead of doing it for them.
