Hand lettering worksheets have become one of the most popular hobbies my children have. I am not a great fan of scrapbooking, so hand lettering worksheets were not on my list of things I would buy for my daughter. She did however, enjoy making them. And she still continues to do so, four years later.
Now, she still does not have all the letters that she wants to practice writing with. But the worksheet gives her the ability to practice lettering in her own home. And she still gets a lot done, every day, every week.
After she made the first few hand lettering worksheets, she asked if we could try some of the more popular programs for kids. We all know how much fun bouncing ideas off of each other can be. So, the next time we were looking for something to practice with, I had two suggestions in mind.
The first recommendation was to purchase a hand lettering practice sheets. She and I looked at several websites and came across a free printable hand lettering worksheet. She was a little shocked when she saw it. The free printables did not have the letters that we wanted, though. But, the free brush pens did and that is the second recommendation that I gave my children.
My second suggestion was to use the free printables to create hand lettering worksheets and then to type up a blog post using the same letters. Then, I would print out the blog post on our computer, so that my children could see the hand lettering worksheets before they even printed the blog post. This way, I would be able to guide them in the right direction. In this case, my children would be getting ideas from the blog post that they could then type into the hand lettering worksheets themselves.
Use Basic Strokes to Create Rain Boots Letters
My third tip is to use the free brush lettering pens that are provided by the program that you are using. I like to recommend this because the pens are easy to find and you can take several of them along with you to your computer. I always recommend that you use the larger size brushes. This allows you to create smooth lettering and that will also look nice when you are hand lettering in the margins. Also, it will allow you to get the right line thickness for your lettering.
My fourth tip is to use the basic stroke order when you are hand lettering the basics of your text. For example, if you want to write the word “hello” you can begin your lettering with the capital letters A, B, and C. Then you can continue your lettering with smaller letters like D and F, followed by the lowercase o if you are doing a horizontal line. Your last basic stroke order is always to begin and end your lettering with the uppercase letters. Remember to place your cursor above or below your text. This will help you see where you are in your lettering and will make it easier to come back to the top or bottom of your worksheet.
These four tips will make life easier when you are trying to create hand lettering worksheets. First of all, the capital letters are a great way to introduce your text and can give it the appearance of being professionally created. Second, the smaller letters are an easy way to make sure that your font choice matches your lettering. Third, you can always break up your text into larger chunks of less than a single line by using your hand lettering worksheets. Finally, don’t stress over making sure your rain boots have capital letters because as long as you have them handy, you’ll be fine! Happy lettering!
