Secret Message


This activity addresses core strengthening, motor planning, and handwriting skills by having the child write letters with towels, while in tabletop position.

Challenge your child’s core muscles by having them maintain a tabletop positioning (on their hands and knees).

Place a hand towel under their hands (or have them hold onto it), then have the child write out letters and words with their arm movements.

Guess their message by watching what they spell out with their towel.

Increase the challenge by:

  • Using their non-dominant hand.
  • Using their feet.
