We are so excited for warmer weather here. With school being done for the year, I noticed my daughter had already gotten some of her letter formation and handwriting skills we had practiced over the year. When that happens, it's a great idea to go back to foundational skills and build on them. So I created this summer-themed pre-writing and scissor activity packet for just that reason.
How to Use the Summer-Themed Activity Packet
In the Summer-themed Prewriting Lines and Scissor Practice Packet, you will get 14 pages of printables that include pre-writing line practice and scissor practice. The packet is designed for 3 year-olds and 7 year-olds or preschool age and through 1st grade.
You don't need to only use a pencil or crayon for these packets. A few great hands-on ways to use these pages include:
Cover with Wiki Stix along the lines
Squeeze glitter glue bottles along the lines
Use pipe cleaners to form the lines and shapes
Trace with a finger or paintbrush with finger paint
