Handwriting Apps

These handwriting apps are great for helping your kids improve their handwriting skills. From traceable letters for the beginning writer to cursive worksheets for kids who are a bit older, there are plenty of handwriting apps to choose from.

Handwriting apps help kids write neatly and within the lines! If your child needs extra handwriting help, try these tips to get him on the fast track to pretty penmanship:

  • Allow your child to practice writing on paper using handwriting practice worksheets, as well as in other other ways to increase his hand-eye coordination and muscle memory.
  • Kids can also practice handwriting with fingerpaints. Fingerpaints are a great tool for young writers who might need to practice the motions before they grip a pencil.
