Coloring is a favourite with three year olds. It is all the more fun when we make them play around it. So on a lazy weekend, I prepared some tracing boards for my little ones.
- Cardboard Pieces
How to make the tracing boards:
- With a pencil draw something on the tracing board; I drew out random objects – sun, cloud, fish, rainbow, car, waves, balloons, umbrella, rocket, star, checkered pattern, flower etc.
- Now trace them over with thick fevicol.
- Leave them to dry overnight.
And your tracing boards are ready. I used small square boards – the size of my hand. You can use any shape you like – big ones, with a full scenery or rectangular pieces with patterns or even alphabets and numbers !
On Monday, I took the boards to my class and as soon as we got free from our day’s work, I gave out the tracing boards, papers and crayons to my kiddies. They set out on it immediately.
Some were not sure what and how things were to be done, so I had to guide them a little.
And after some “trials and errors”, they were all fine !!
You can even use these at home. Do try it and share your experience !
