In an effort to help M develop some pre-writing skills (since he is forever wanting to “draw letters” but gets frustrated when he can’t), I made him this little game book. It’s full of mazes mostly right now, and a couple of dot-to-dots. Dot-to-dot is a new idea for him, but I think he’ll catch on quickly.
I simply printed a few pages I found online, put them into page protectors, and popped them into a 3-ring binder. He can use his window markers on the page protectors, then wipe them off and do them again.
Eventually I’ll add shape tracing pages, maybe some “draw a line from the dog to his doghouse” type of worksheets (do you know what I’m talking about??), and even some large letter patterns to follow.
This was super-easy and super-fast to put together.
Here are some of the links I found for good game pages to print. I copied some of the smaller mazes into my photo-editing program, enlarged them, and then printed them out.
- Simple dot-to-dot pages
- Simple mazes (.pdf file)
- More simple mazes
- Mazes ( a tiny bit more difficult)
- Website full of game links, rated by difficulty
I hope you enjoy this idea!
Have a beautiful day! :)
