Besides reading lots and lots of books, my 3 year old boy (he’s actually 3 and 4 months) isn’t very interested in sitting still for anything that’s school-y. I’m totally okay with that. 🙂 There’s plenty of time to sit for school work in later years. Right now he’s obsessed with being outside and beating on things with sticks and digging in the dirt.
So we go outside every chance we get! Reading a variety of books, physical activity outside, and being in nature is plenty for this energetic boy of mine.
However, he does love these tracing worksheets! I don’t bring them out but once every two or three weeks, so he might enjoy them so much because I don’t let the “new” factor wear off.
Regardless, he is going to love this new set of summer tracing worksheets! He’s at just the right stage for them.

Summer Tracing Worksheets for Preschool
This summer set of tracing worksheets for preschoolers is the perfect learning activity to tuck away for a rainy day or when it’s just too hot to go outside.
My 3 year old loves this style of worksheet and the different pictures and letters. He uses his finger to trace the letters and the lines between the pictures.
When I’m feeling extra fantastic and energetic, I break out the paint and Q-tips and let him trace the lines in that way. But if I have too many plates spinning in the air that day, he has to settle for crayons or Twistables or his lovely little toddler-y fingers.
I save paint and Q-tips for my “fun Mama” days. Just being honest!
Each page includes fun summer themed pictures with a connecting tracing line. I also included a capital and lowercase letter of the beginning sound of each picture.
Words and pictures included in this set:
- ice pop
There are 20 pages included in this Summer Tracing Packet:

Using Summer Tracing Worksheets
There are many different ways you can use these summer 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 summer 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.
