Tracing activities come in many forms. Will try to throw in a few ideas or resources for you guys to work with, okay? One that does not require preparation, yup.. Happy, right when you all hear NO PREPARATION? Muahahaa! They are definitely not my traditional DIY. They are off the shelf materials.
It's like this place mat activity. While waiting for dinner to be served, the children can trace the alphabets on this mat. How nice, right? It can be wipe-cleaned easily since only whiteboard markers can be used on it. Throw in a couple of coloured ones and you can vary the print feature. When tracing is completed, the children can doodle at the back of the mat too for it is like a blank piece of paper. See.. we're saving the trees. :)
