These butterfly letter tracing cards provide a great opportunity for kids to build motor skills in a variety of ways!
Print these cards on colored paper and laminate them for durability. There are a few different ways you can use these cards to work on a variety of skills.
How to Use These Cards
Once you’ve got the letter cards and you’ve separated them into 26 individual cards, decide what skills you want to work on.
Tracing – First, have kids identify the letters on the card. Have them use dry erase markers (on laminated pages) or crayons to trace the letters and/or the butterfly parts.
They can then color the picture if they’d like.
Wikki Stix – For a different type of fine motor activity, have kids trace the letters with a dry erase marker. Then, have them use wikki stix (wax covered yarn) to outline the butterflies.
Wikki stix can be bent and curved to trace the contour of the butterfly’s lines. Manipulating the wikki stix gives little ones an opportunity to strengthen a different muscle group than holding a marker does.
