How to use winter trace and color pages

These winter trace, write, and color pages can be used several ways:
The pages are easy to use as a no-prep indoor activity for winter. Simply download the 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.

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!
- Ideal for long-term storage, non-stick polypropylene material is acid-free and won't lift print
- Top loading—no need to punch inserts
- Clear binding edge for a professional look
The 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 punching shape.
If you’re unfamiliar with Montessori work, this activity may sound strange and dangerous to you. It’s very beneficial to a child’s fine motor development and a frequently used activity in Montessori Primary classrooms with ages 3-6.
To make the activity 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.
