This cute llama preschool pack is a fun, low-prep way to keep young children learning and entertained! Grab 25+ pages of educational (and fun) free printables to help your child or students practice their fine motor skills, visual discrimination, letter recognition, position words, and more.
This llama learning pack is designed for children 3-6, but younger and older children can benefit from it, too. For example, my 2.5 year old enjoys playing with the matching cards and we can work on the counting clip cards together. The activity pack is great or use at home, for homeschool preschool/totschool, or in the classroom.
You are welcome to use these printables in your personal classroom or with your own therapy clients. Please do not share the printables with other adults for use with their children or students – simply refer them to this page so they can download their own copies!
I’ve had considerate readers emailing to ask if they can share the files with their distance learning students. Given everything that’s going on the world right now, yes, you may digitally share the files with your own students. However, if possible, please encourage parents to visit this page to download their own copies.

Suggested materials for printing and using the llama learning pack:
Paper & printer. I always print colored printables on presentation paper. It’s a heavyweight paper with a special coating for crisp, vibrant images. The coating also makes it nice for coloring. Markers don’t feather and bleed and colored pencils color smoothly on presentation paper.
If you don’t have presentation paper, white cardstock is the next best choice for printing these activity pages.
And, of course, you can always print the pages on plain printer paper.
Laminator. I recommend laminating virtually all of the pages for increased durability. I laminate basically everything except for cutting practice and coloring pages. If you want use do a dot markers, don’t laminate those pages, either. If you don’t have/use do a dot markers, you can laminate these pages and use pompoms or something else to cover the circles.
When you laminate pages, your child can use them time and again. They can trace lines with a marker or crayon, do puzzles time and again, and enjoy countless games of matching cards or memory.
Laminated pages are also easy to stick in a folder to use again another year or even with other children.
- Laminates Items up to 9 inches wide
- Two roller system with two temperature settings
- Suitable for use with photos
Dot markers. Do a Dot markers are fun, but you can use this learning pack without them if you don’t have any on hand. We have the classic “Rainbow” pack of 6 Do a Dot Markers.
Pompoms or other small markers like flat marbles are helpful, especially if you don’t have dot markers.

If your child will be using pompoms, add an additional challenge by having them move the pompoms with a pair of tongs or plastic tweezers. We use a pair of 6” silicone tip tongs for pompoms. I used two pairs of pliers to pry the metal keeper bar off. It kept sliding down and holding the tongs closed, which frustrated my daughter.

Clothespins for the clip cards. Working with clothespins provides fine motor practice, finger strengthening, and hand-eye coordination. If you don’t have clothespins, your child can mark letters or numbers on the clip cards with something else (like with a pompom or by circling with a crayon or marker).
Sometimes small clothespins, like the ones my daughter is using with this sock matching printable in the photo below, are easier for little hands.
Child-sized blunt tipped scissors for the cutting activities. We use these small Fiskars.
For gluing practice, make sure to provide a glue stick. Don’t provide glue if you want the complete the sequence and positional activity book pages to be reusable.
You may also want a paper trimmer and/or a pair of adult-sized scissors for cutting out clip cards and puzzles. I’ve personally used this paper trimmer for years. The wire guide makes it accurate and it is much safer than one of those guillotine-style cutters.
Hole punch and lacing string (or shoelace) for lacing cards.

Matching cards/memory game
My daughter loves matching cards. I always laminate matching card games for increased durability. Young children can play with these cards as face-up matching cards and older children can play with them as a face-down memory game.
Matching/memory cards help improve visual discrimination, attention to detail, and memory skills. Picking the cards up can provide fine motor practice for young children, too!
Complete the sequence
To use the complete the sequence printable, either cut out the image tiles yourself or have a child help. You can turn this page into a cut and paste activity, or you can have your child place the sequence tiles without gluing them to make it reusable.
(The fifth tile is missing in the photo below – oops! Don’t worry – all tiles on the PDF printable.)
Cutting strips and prewriting/fine motor activities
Developing fine motor skills is incredibly important. Children today are at risk for poor fine motor skills due to increased use of technology. These cutting strips and fine motor activity printables can help your little one improve their finger strength and dexterity.
First there is a page of cutting strips. Cut the long strips from the page, then have your child snip between the image tiles. There is a lined gap between each image to give your child a place to cut.
Next there’s a page with lines to trace or cut. Younger children can trace the lines and older children can practice cutting them. Make sure to laminate the page to make the traceable lines reusable.
Finally, there are three full sheet tracing/fine motor activities. You can use these in a variety of ways. Here are a few ways you child can use these pages, from easiest to most challenging:
- Trace the dotted line with a finger
- Trace the dotted line with a crayon or marker
- Move small objects (like a flat marble) along the line
- Use tongs to move a small object along the line
- Cut along the line
Beginning letter match
There are two bright and cheerful beginning letter match dot marker printables. Have your child dot, or cover, the appropriate letter for each page. To make the pages reusable, cover the letters with pompoms instead of using a dot marker.
Three coloring pages provide more literacy practice and the chance to color. The letters and words are outlined so they can be colored in and the images are large for young children to color. There are pages for llama, cactus, and flower.
Next there are three lacing shape printables. I highly recommend laminating these pages! Lacing cards are a fun way to improve hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills.
To use the cards, print them, laminate, and use a single hole punch to punch out the designated holes. You can use a cord from a lacing set, a shoelace, or even a piece of yarn. If you’re using yarn, wrap the tip with tape to make a point and prevent fraying.
At first, don’t worry about how your child laces the shape. Simply allow them to lace, even if thy zig-zap back and forth across the shape and miss holes.
Once your child has mastered the basic mechanics of lacing, you can encourage them to lace the holes in order.
Number building puzzles
Number building puzzles are a lot of fun! I recommend laminating the pages and using a paper trimmer to cut the puzzle strips. There are two number puzzles that count from 1-10 and one puzzle that count’s by 10’s to 100.
Counting clip cards
Counting clip cards help your child work on numbers while strengthening their fingers. Print and laminate the pages, then cut out the cards. Have your child mark the correct number with a clothespin. If you don’t have clothespins, numbers can be marked with an object. There are three pages of clip cards with numbers 1-12.
Colors, size, and 2 part puzzles
I decided to bundle these three pages together because downloading individual pages gets pretty boring!
There is a page called “I know my colors!” that asks your child to color words and flowers the appropriate color.
Next there’s a page with 2 part puzzles. Because the puzzle shapes are interchangeable, your child needs to pay attention to the images to ensure they match.
Finally, there’s a size recognition activity that asks your child to color the big images one color and the smaller images a different color.
Positional words activity book
This positional words activity book provides your child the opportunity to color, cut, paste, and practice their positional words.
Cut out each page and staple in the marked margins. Cut out the image tiles on the final page and have your child place them according to each page’s instructions. This activity book is fun to do with younger children, even toddlers.
