I’m always looking for new ways to work on things. Fall is a favorite theme for use and Fall trees are also a favorite. I wanted to do something fun that would be used in fall, summer or spring with trees.
Plus I know people are always looking for more fine motor ideas. So today I have some Tree Shape Trace and color printables.
It is trees with overlapping shapes for kids to trace and color.
Each of the trees has a trunk and them a shape for you to trace to make up the leaves of the tree. It is a fun way to work on fine motor skills and color at the same time.
There are twelve shapes that kids can work on: circle, square, rectangle, oval, diamond (or rhombus), triangle, star, heart, crescent, hexagon, parallelogram, and octagon
How we use these printables
There are so many fun ways to use these printables. I thought I would share a few of them.
For the fall you can mix up the colors with red, orange and yellow and make a great fall tree. We traced the outline with black crayon and then colored it in.
For the spring you could mix up colors of green and pink for the blossoms on trees. Or you could just mix up colors to make ita full tree in blossom. We used oil pastels to trace and watercolors to color.
There are so many endless ways to use these printables. They are loads of fun for kids to use. Plus they can make a fun art project as well.
