How to use preschool tracing pages
These Easter trace, write, and color pages can be used several ways:
The pages are easy to use as a no-prep indoor activity for preschoolers and kindergarteners. They’re great to have in your toolkit for rainy spring days or as part of your regularly planned Easter theme. Simply download the free printables below, print, and hand them to your little learner with their favorite markers, pencils, or crayons.
Your child can trace and color the page, trace the word, and write the word on the line provided if they’re working on independent writing. Then, of course, they can color the picture! We love Honeysticks natural beeswax crayons. They are completely safe for little hands and mouths that are still tasting crayons.

Another favorite are these Stabilo Woody 3-in-1 colored pencils. They’re basically a large wax crayon in a wood casing like a pencil. The awesome thing about these is that they can color on laminated pages, which means you can make reusable coloring pages.
- XXL lead applies as much pigment as 8 colored pencils at once
- Large width ideal for smaller hands
Unlike markers, which erase themselves on laminated sheets, you can truly color with the Stabilo Woody pencils, even on glass and laminated sheets. I know it sounds too good to be true, but you can see them in action in this short video clip (below) I filmed for these free printable dinosaur coloring pages:
Markers are the easiest to use for tracing. Markers glide easily across the page, whether or not it’s laminated. Crayons and colored pencils both provide more friction, which means they’re a greater fine motor challenge for little hands.
To make the tracing pages reusable, laminate the sheets or place them in page protectors. Laminated pages are better for coloring – sheet protectors tend to wrinkle when they’re colored enthusiastically. We laminate reusable coloring pages and place them in an expanding file folder for easy storage.
The tracing pages can also be used as a Montessori pin punching activity. Montessori pin punching/push pin work involves using a pen or stylus to punch holes along a shape. A piece of felt, cork board, or foam core board is used as a backing behind the shape being punched.
If you’re unfamiliar with Montessori work, this activity may sound strange and dangerous to you. That’s completely understandable! However, it’s very beneficial for your child’s fine motor development. It’s a frequently used activity in Montessori Primary classrooms with ages 3-6.
To make pin punching work safer, use a pencil-sized stylus with a dull end. (Not an affiliate link, just a company I personally shop with.) Of course, you want to always supervise your child closely while they’re engaged in pin punching.
If you want to see a step-by-step view of pin punching, this post from Montessori Album has great photos.
