I’m so glad you all love the Tracing Worksheets for Preschool! Unfortunately, there was an error in the clipart of the Thanksgiving set, and the artist couldn’t correct it in time for me to publish. Thankfully, the Christmas set is all ready to go!

I’m using these tracing worksheets for my 3 3/4 year old boy (4 in just a few months). He is a very active boy that doesn’t like to sit still for very long, so these activities are just right for his current attention span.
I’ll add these to his preschool time on Monday!

Christmas Tracing Worksheets for Preschool
This set of Christmas Tracing Worksheets are perfect to add to your normal preschool routine. You could also save them for a day when it’s too cold to go outside, or put them on a clipboard and use them while in a waiting room or a long car ride.
Most of the time, my 3 year old uses his finger to trace the lines. Occasionally he will also use Twistables or a crayon to follow the lines.
You could also use a Q-tip dipped in a little bit of paint to practice the lines. I put all of the colors on the same paper plate, squirting just a little of each.
Next, I let my soon choose which worksheet he would like to use. I have my son choose the paint color that is the same as the picture – so he would choose yellow to match the present page.
With just a little bit of interaction, you can cover colors and fine motor skills all in one activity. I love that!
Don’t feel guilty, however, on the days you just need to set up the activity and let him do his thing so you can help another child with their schoolwork. ❤
Each page includes fun Christmas themed pictures with a connecting tracing line. I also included a capital and lowercase letter of the beginning sound of each picture.
The Santa Hat in the landscape version only has one S as to not make the page too jumbled.
Words and pictures included in this set:
- Christmas Tree
- Gingerbread Boy
- Santa Hat
There are 20 pages included in this Christmas Tracing Packet:
— 5 colored pages of Portrait orientation
— 5 black and white pages of Portrait orientation
— 5 colored pages of Landscape orientation
— 5 black and white pages of Landscape orientation
** This set of tracing worksheets would complement the Letter Formation Cards beautifully!
All Access Pass members can download this entire 20-page packet in the All Access Pass area.
Using Christmas Tracing Worksheets
There are many different ways you can use these Christmas tracing worksheets with your young learners.
Aside from the obvious of using a pencil and tracing the lines, here are a couple of ideas to get you started, whether you’re in a homeschool or classroom setting:
- Use these pages in your small groups – everyone completes a page at the same time and then shares their page with others
- Set up a Christmas center and use these tracing pages as the main item – decorate each station with the item in the picture (You can often find small erasers to match at the Dollar Spot at Target!)
- Place these worksheets in page protectors in a 3-ring notebook. Your child can reuse these over and over with a dry erase marker.
- Forget the pencil for awhile! Use glitter glue, markers, Twistables, colored pencils, crayons, or any other writing implement other than a pencil to complete the tracing. Makes for a nice change of pace!
- Use these worksheets as I will do with my 3 year old – place them in page protectors and practice “drawing” on the lines with a finger. You could also have your child trace the lines with a Q-tip, or a small block or pom pom to improve dexterity.
