Fun tracing activity – Free preschool tracing lines worksheets!

We have been practising tracing the dotted lines for quite sometime. Tracing dotted lines is the first step in learning to write. For young 2 years old & preschoolers, its good to start with straight, slanted and zigzag dotted lines. Then slowly introduce tracing shapes/letters/numbers etc. Here is a fun tracing lines activity – Using stickers to connect the dots! I got these cute little stars from target’s dollar aisle (600 stars for $1).

Activity: Use stickers to join the dots and trace the lines.
Aim: Tracing lines is a pre writing skill which improves concentration and hand-eye coordination.
Bonus: We talked about the colors & counted the stars in each line.

My busy 34 months preschooler never wants to sit and color. Surprisingly he took some crayons and finished this art work!

Sharing the post at Montessori Monday activities.

I made few tracing the lines worksheets for my son. To make the activity interesting, I have used simple cliparts in the worksheets. You can easily do this with Microsoft word.

If you like to use these worksheets, click on the image and save the PDF file. Print it and use the worksheets. Let me know if you have trouble in downloading.

  1. What a fun preschool learning activity!

  2. I love your idea of using stickers to trace the lines! Young children typically love stickers, and they’re great for developing fine-motor coordination.
