Shapes are one of the fun activities to work on. I love that there are so many great shape ideas. A few years ago we did star themed playdough mats and loved them. I wanted to add something more to it.
So I made these fun space shape tracing printables to work on more shapes with a space theme.
It is always fun to change things up but have them also be a fun activity everyone has already loved.
Each of the pages has a shape to trace with stars around it. I wanted something fun like constellations that kids can trace but shapes.
This is a simple and easy fine motor with shapes! Plus work great with crayons or any way you want to trace and color them!
How we used these Space Themed Shape Tracing Printables
The most basic way to use these is to color the stars yellow and trace with black. I love this because you are making a shape themed constellation.
Kids can color and trace with their favorite colors. It is fun to see what colors they pick. You could use crayons or markers for this.
You can use these as learning mats you can. We love using erasers to color the shapes. We had some rocket ships that we picked up at target. But you can use any erasers. I recommend laminating the mat if you plan on using it this way.
If you want to reuse the pages you can put them in a sheet protector and trace them with a dry erase marker. I have stored many pages like this and left them for my girls to use when they were younger.
After you are done and looking for more space themed shape activities check out the space themed shape find! it is a great way to work on tracing the shape and finding the shape on the planet.
