The Alphabet Tracing Sheets Busy Bag from our Busy Bag Swap has been one of the children’s favorites. It’s perfect for Kaitlynn (4) as she loves to practice drawing her letters. Silas has also enjoyed trying to write the letters, too.
Secretly, though, I think one reason it’s their favorite is because it involves markers–something usually off-limits at our house.
This Busy Bag just involves a laminated page or two of some type of numbers or letters (you could also do shapes or cursive) and a dry erase marker or crayon. You could also include some sort of eraser. Ours didn’t have an eraser, so we just use a cloth or baby wipe.
The beauty of this is that you can use it again and again and again! If you don’t have a laminator or don’t want to mess with laminating the sheets, you could just put them in page protectors and it would work almost as well. If you wanted to do more than a few pages, you could stick them in a three-ring binder for hours of tracing practice!
