Spring Garden Prewriting Paths

Are your kids longing to see Spring and warmer weather or perhaps there are already signs of Spring in your garden? These FREE Spring Garden prewriting paths will set your young students in the right mood for learning and practicing those ever-important prewriting skills!

FREE printable Spring themed tracing sheets for toddlers and preschoolers to practice prewriting and fine motor skills.

Before young children can master writing letters and numbers, they need to develop fine motor skills and pencil control, this is part of prewriting skills, as the name implies. There are a lot of fun ways to develop these skills and one way is tracing lines like in this activity. Other activities include playing with playdough, lacing or threading, using tweezers/clothespins/pegs to pick up small items, Q-tip painting, just to name a few. (TIP: use the SEARCH bar on the righthand side to search for more of these activities!)

These Spring Garden prewriting paths are so fun to use- helping the bee, butterfly, bird etc. to the garden.

Preparing this Activity:

Print the free printable Spring Garden prewriting paths. Laminate the pages if you wish, or use a dry-erase pocket to make it reusable. Either provide a dry-erase marker or small items like buttons, beads or mini pompoms.

How to Use the Printables:

There are two ways you can use the prewriting printables. 1) Simply trace the lines with the marker and follow them to the end, or, 2) Use a small item to follow the lines, moving it with the finger.

Another great option is to attach the small item(eg. button) to a magnet, then use another magnet that is attached to a craft stick to move the button around. (Make sure the magnets attract each other before attaching them.) Move the stick under the page to let the button "magically" move and follow the lines!

Such a fun way to practice prewriting skills this Spring! Grab your Spring Garden Prewriting Paths printables now and let the fun learning begin!
