How to use printable trace and color pages

These Valentine’s Day trace, write, and color pages can be used several ways:
The pages are easy to use as a no-prep indoor activity for February. They’re great to have in your toolkit for cold, wet days or as part of your regularly planned Valentine theme. Simply download the free printables below, print, and hand them to your little learner with their favorite markers 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.
Markers are the easiest to use for tracing. Markers glide across the page. 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. We use secure page protectors with a flap that prevents the page from accidentally sliding out. Your child can use a dry erase marker to trace the design, then erase and trace again.
- Keep contents secure in the protective sleeve with convenient top flap; perfect for holding nonstandard size papers and important items
- Get a crisp, clear view of the contents of your documents with diamond clear page protectors featuring a polished finish for high clarity
- Ensure your documents stay protected with long-lasting super heavyweight sheet protectors for all of your frequently referenced items
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.
