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.

Supplies needed:

  1. Cardboard Pieces
  2. Pencil
  3. Fevicol

How to make the tracing boards:

  1. 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.
  2. Now trace them over with thick fevicol.
  3. 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 !
