Who doesn’t want to bring more love into their school day? These Valentine’s day tracing worksheets are great for pre-writers who need to get those fine motor skills under control.
My daughter has a wonderful time trying to get her pencil from one side of the page to the other. She also enjoys using scissors so we’re doing a lot of cutting practice. We mostly use strips of construction paper for that.

Recommended Valentine’s day books
Discover love and joy through these fun Valentine’s day books. You can never have too many books in your house, so don’t stress! We find a balance between buying books and renting books and it works out great for us. I’ll keep some of our favorite books in the car for the kids to use them and read them for travels and sprinkle new books that we’ve bought or rented throughout the house for the kids to grab easily and read.
Make certain that you sit and read with the kids or have them read to you. There are so many things that are taught from the pages of a book that go hand in hand with their learning and their growth.
- Pete the Cat Valentine’s day is Cool
- Love from the Very Hungry Caterpillar
- Amelia Bedelia’s First Valentine
The great thing about books is that every page helps them learn. And when a book is written with a great story, the reading is just so simple and easy to do! Below are just a few other of our favorite books that the kids will love to read.
The list could be forever long because there are so many great choices!

Follow the car or animals over to the other size and see how well your child can follow along the path.
Fine motor skills are important for writing, tying their shoes and so much more. As you can see, the directions of the lines will have the kids working on holding the pens and tracing them to and from. This is great for following directions and being able to move their hands in different ways.
Trace along the shapes and discuss what kind of shapes they are at the same time. How many sides are there? What is it called? Where else have you seen this shape?
This is an awesome activity to help them start to notice shapes in the vicinity of their daily lives and also understand that shapes can be found everywhere that they look. The lines lead to fun shapes and pictures and it just presents so many fun learning activities.
Practice cutting with these worksheets as well, teach your child how to properly hold a pair of scissors and follow along the path. Cutting practice will look like a ton of fun.
