I like the different kinds of alphabet series you can choose from, and there are some that are cursive too. I'm so surprised that so many older kids can't sign their names. I realize the need for cursive has dissipated, but everyone should be able to sign their name, right? These would be a fun way to help them learn, if you got a version that had script. I know how to write in cursive (old school here, for sure), so I would choose the kit above. I like the block font of 'The Greens.'
There are holiday versions too: Easter, Mother's Day, Christmas, and more. I think the Christmas version would be a fun gift for right now, since we are in the thick of the holiday season. Plus, it would be a fun way to keep the holiday spirit alive as the year moves on. It gives the kids (or adults) something fun to do. I think these are a cute idea.
