When your young child is learning how to write their name small pencils are not the best option to start with. Their small hands lack the fine motor control to manipulate the tiny pencil. Fat pencils, markers and the fat crayons are good for helping them grip and have better control. One medium I love to use is bingo dobbers. They are fun for the kids and work similar to markers, but many have a lip on them to help keep their fingers in place.

Paper and Pencil

Have them go over it with multiple colors. You could also have them trace other things: shapes, lines, numbers.
