Glue Tracing

letter tracing with glue

This glue tracing activity saved my sanity and worked on my son’s pre-writing skills. My son loves glue and I fell in love with this post over at Play Activities - yesterday while trying to keep my sanity with a newborn who wouldn’t sleep and a 3 year old who only wanted to play soccer… in the living room, I busted it out.  Simple, fun and you can let it dry and use the sheets again. My son really loved it ( thank goodness), oh and it works their fine motor and hand eye coordination too!

  1. Gather your materials. You will need some paper ( heavy is better so the glue won’t seep through if they use a little too much), a marker and glue.Glue Tracing
  2. Start by writing letters , making shapes , numbers or even just designs.Glue Tracing
  3. Hand them the glue and have them trace.Glue TracingGlue Tracing
  4. If it’s too tricky grab some new paper and make the letters larger.
  5. Let dry and trace and feel them with your fingers!Glue Tracing
