From caterpillar to butterfly, these free butterfly coloring sheets are fantastic for preschool students. Each printable butterfly includes thick black lines for easy coloring. Your tots and preschool students will love how simple these butterflies are to color in. Additionally, you’ll find each coloring page includes an educational activity such as handwriting or tracing for extra practice.
Below each beautiful butterfly is an opportunity for your young students to put their skills to the test! A dashed line provides a cutting guide for students to practice their small motor scissor skills. Ample opportunity is available for students to practice their fine motor skills by tracing the letter formation guide to spell out common words.
We suggest encouraging your student to first trace with their finger, then when that is mastered, have them use a chubby pencil or crayon. Numbers indicate which stroke students should make first for each letter. Teaching your student proper pencil grip and stroke order (commonly called letter formation order) is important for laying a solid foundation for future handwriting skills. It’s much easier to train students correctly the first time, then to attempt to retrain or reteach when poor habits are already formed.
In case you were wondering, yes, this homeschool mama is speaking from experience. If you are looking for opportunities to retrain pencil grip, don’t worry, we are right there with you! Check out our pencil control workbook and our fine motor activity packs for fun ways you can encourage your student to practice their small motor skills.
