Letter of The Day : AaTracing Mat

FREE 12 Sets of Apple Tracing Mat for Toddlers

Yesterday we did Letter A is for Apple, thus I’m making Apple Tracing Mat especially for Miss 3 who is currently in tracing mode.

Tracing is a way of strengthening fine motor skills. It can be done in several ways. Among others, kids can trace using the usual crayon or color pencils, or tracing using fingers and Q-tips.

For Apple Tracing Mat, Miss 3 used colored pens, whatever available right next to her.

Apple Tracing Mat

This tracing mat inspired by Miss 3, so it started with Miss 3’s favorite shape, which is the circle shape.

Miss 3 is quite obsessed with circle shape because it resembles the letter ‘O’, and the letter ‘O’ is very close to her because her nickname is ‘Ochee’. 

It starts with ‘O’

Preparing Tracing Using Apple Tracing Mat

To prepare the activity, you need to print it first.

I made the Apple Tracing Mat into A5 size so that it is easier for you you want to pack it into travel busy bag activity.

Materials needed :

  1. Printer to print the Apple Tracing Mat 
  2. Laminating Machine – Optional, if you wish to laminate it for more durability 
  3. Tracing material – such as crayon, or color pencil, or marker, or colored pens
  4. Cutter – to cut the pages 

Activity Using Apple Tracing Mat 

Once you are ready prepping, invite your toddler or preschoolers to begin tracing.

Allow them to express themselves while tracing.

For instance, our Miss 3 would like to color the clouds after she done with tracing. Or maybe your toddler wish to draw something with the apple. Just let the creativity flow.
