The Elizabeth 3 Font

Last year, I decided to document our kids’ handwriting progress by creating a font based off of the letters they draw every year. Now that we’re about to record Elizabeth’s 4-year-old handwriting, and Maurua’s 2-year-old handwriting, I figured it’d be fun to release last year’s “Elizabeth 3” font. It’s TTF, and built using a tool you can find over at myscriptfonts.


Something fun to do with your kids, if you’re so inclined!
