Free Download: Tracing Book for Little Kids


Children need as much practice with fine motor control and the pencil grip as they can get so I'd have them do a mix of play using their fingers, a mix of different activities involving the use of their hands, drawing activities and tracing lines. (For older children, I have them trace stencil sheets.)

There are many line tracing worksheets on the internet, some free while others are paid for. I have many books that I use bu they don't always contain the things that I want children to practice. With that in mind, I've made my own tracing book and I am sharing this with you, my dear readers, for free.

Correct Pencil Grip for Writing and Drawing


Fine motor skills don't develop on their own. It's something that parents need to help their young children develop through practice use. What I find is that those who don't use any writing implements will have under-developed fine motor control.

Fun Drawing Activities to Develop Fine Motor Skills


I always have students at varying stages of fine motor skills development. The challenge is to bring them all up to the same level so they could write their names, numbers and letters before they enter kindergarten. So I'm always on the lookout for ways to develop their fine motor skills in a fun way.

Children need to not only control the pencil but they need to also grip the pencil properly to be able to write with ease. So I also wanted specific activities that got children to use a writing implement so they can practice holding and controlling it. Below are some of the drawing activities that chiidren did.
