Prepping Easter Chicks Tracing
This post contains affiliate links for your convenience.
This Printable is almost no prep.
You just have to print it, and you are ready to go!
Laminate for durability
Well, unless you want to reuse the tracing mats, I suggest that you laminate it using laminating machine, after printing.
Laminating the copy helps to keep it more durable, especially to avoid toddlers from crumpling the tracing mats.
But you also need to have tracing supplies ready, such as crayon and color pencils.
Doing Activity with Easter Chicks Tracing
To do this activity, it is just simply trace the tracing mats.
Looks simple, right?
But wait until your toddler get these tracing mats in their hands. They will surely ask for more!
Tracing can be done using so many materials. Usually Miss 3 loves to trace using the classic color pencils or crayons.
But on the other hand, my 3 years old nephew is yet to be able to hold the crayons the right way.
If your toddlers are not able to hold the crayon or color pencils like my nephew, you might want to consider using these as your toddlers’ tracing materials:
Tracing using Bare Fingers
You can let them dip those cute fingers into watercolor, and trace the tracing mats using their fingers.
This messy activity works best if you have laminated the tracing mats.
Tips : For messy activity, to do easy clean-up later, usually I would put some old cloth as protection layer under the tracing mats. Or we can let the kids play in dried swimming pool.
Tracing using Dot Stickers
Let their cute little fingers work their way to peel those little dot stickers over and over again. It looks simple, but this activity helps to strengthen their fine motor skills, and eventually helps them to be able to hold color pencils or crayons the right way.
Tracing using Playdough
Take out your playdough supply and let your toddlers roll them.
Rolling the playdough, kneading them and shape them to the tracing lines helps your toddlers to develop so much skills.
Among the skills developed are including their fine motor skills and eye hand coordination.

How to Keep the Toddlers Busy With This Tracing Mat?
If they had done doing the tracing, let them color or draw their own imagination on the chicks.
They might want to draw another chicks, or color the paper with blue, just to tell us that it is bright sunny day with the chicks.
Or draw a grass and flowers for the chicks to play around.
Once they are done with tracing and coloring or drawing, let them cut those chicks and paste on a blank paper, or in their activity book.
