I have just created Rosalie this set of spring themed tracing activities for some pre-writing, pencil control and fine motor practice to keep her out of mischief (hopefully!).
There’s a sheet with kite shapes to trace and another with flowers. I have also created some fun join the bee to the flower and join the rabbit to the carrot tracing activities.
To do this activity with your toddler, simply download the free spring themed tracing printables, print them out* and laminate back-to-back. Set your child up with the printables and a whiteboard or dry wipe pen, and let them try and trace the dotted lines.
Tracing activities provide toddlers with wonderful opportunities to work on their fine motor and pencil control skills, without even realising. To them they are having fun making marks and trying to follow dotted lines, but it takes a lot of control and concentration for them to stick to the lines. Their developing hand muscles will be working hard so they might not be able to spend too long doing tracing before they just want to scribble or do something else.
Encourage them to wipe the sheet clean themselves too!
Rosalie – 39 months
I’d be delighted to know if you enjoy this activity – do leave me a comment or tag me on social media with photos of your toddlers enjoying my free printables!
