If you’re looking for a way to help your little ones develop their fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination while also having fun, these squirrel line tracing worksheets are a perfect choice!
These worksheets are designed to help children improve their pencil control and tracing skills by guiding the squirrels along a path so they can find those tasty corns!
As they carefully trace the lines between the squirrel and the nut, they will be developing the fine motor skills that are so important for early writing and drawing.
If your little ones are really enjoying practicing those writing skills, you can discover some more tracing activities here.
What Skills Can Your Little Ones Learn And Develop?
This fall tracing worksheet is 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 won’t 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 fine motor skills that will enable them to become great writers in the future!
