What Skills Can Your Little Ones Learn And Develop?
These trace the line printables are designed to help your children practice and develop their prewriting skills, such as:
- Hand-eye coordination – to be able to understand what they are seeing and get their hands to go where they want them to go
- Hand and finger strength – the ability to be able to apply enough pressure to make marks on the page and hold the pencil firmly
- Hand dominance – developing and strengthening the skill of one of their hands
- Crossing the mid-line – this is the ability to cross the imaginary line running down the center of your body – it means they wont have to switch hands if they want to write on the other side of the page
- Pencil control – holding the pencil correctly to allow for a fluid range of movement
These are all vital skills that will enable them to become great writers in the future!

There’s color and black and white tracing sheets if you want to save a little ink and let your little ones do a bit of coloring as well.
There’s also an easier and a harder sheet so you may want to let them try the easier one first.
That’s pretty much it for this one, print it off and then you just need to grab some pencils, pens or crayons and they’re good to go! Their goal is to stay as close to the lines as possible.
Gently encourage them if they find it a little tricky at first – learning all these new skills takes time!
