It is this time of the year when all is about Christmas. It is starting just after Thanksgiving and stays for a whole month. I love Christmas. This is my favorite time of the year. The preparations, crafts, cooking, lights, songs, decorations. All of this makes me smile. It is hard to decide what kind of printable I should make for this special time. I realized I have here printables for kids from preschool to early elementary. This is why there will be THREE CHALLENGES at the same time :). So Every day I will add one printable worksheet to each of them. I created a small list of ideas, all together I have 24 worksheets, 8 for each category.
In this post, you will find all worksheets with traceable words and sentences. I will use block letter font with is used in most schools. I want this worksheet to be a fun way to handwriting practice for your child. The size of the letters will be good for kindergarten and early elementary school kids. There is a black DOT on each letter to indicate where to start tracing.

In each line, you will find a word and a number to trace. On the end, there is a Merry Christmas sign to trace and a Christmas tree to color.
Day 3 – Santa’s reindeers name tracing for kids
Two printable pages with trace and rewrite words. This time there are Santa’s reindeer names to trace.
Day 4 – Christmas tree ornament list
I was able to add to this list nine types of items we use to decorate a Christmas tree. I left an empty line where your child can write his idea of Christmas tree decoration. There are black dots on each letter to indicate where to start tracing a letter, I see on my son’s writing that it helps him to practice good habits in writing letters.
For some reason this pdf is in landscape orientation, I do not have any idea how to fix it 🙂 but it doesn’t affect how it is printed on the paper.
Day 5 – Christmas tracing words
There would not be Christmas if not for this story. So today you can trace words that are related to the Birth of Christ. There are two printable pages in this worksheet to trace. Each word has again the black dot, so it would be easier to practice handwriting. Click the button to download this worksheet. And again as usual if you like my work, let me know about it :). You can do it by adding a comment to this post. You can also post on Instagram a picture with finished tracing by your child and tag me in the post.
Day 6 – Ways to say Merry Christmas
Ok, so I needed to google it. I found a website, where was not only a list of how to say “Merry Christmas” but also a list of translations from other languages. You can check it by yourself. For my worksheet, I chose five of them, with I liked. I added a black dot to each letter so it would be easier to trace.
A small digression about The Dot. So some time ago, I saw how my son is writing. From the bottom. From the wrong side. Weird for me. I tried to explain to him how the letters should be written but he kept forgetting how to write them. Then I created The Dot. I made an alphabet. In each row the first letter had arrows with numbers to show how to trace, then on each letter (without an arrow), I added a dot. I explained how it works, that he should start tracing from this point. I cannot say he immediately started to write as a PRO 😉 but I see progress. And if I see he is better that means it is working. The alphabet with The Dot is in my Etsy store, I made it for preschoolers. But an alphabet with The Dot and smaller letters is available on this blog for free (it is a version for 1st grades more because of the size of the letters).
Day 7 – Tracing letters S, G, and E and words Santa, Gift and Elf
When I ask kids about Christmas, the first word they say is Santa, then gifts. Today tracing pages are about these words. I created three printable pages with traceable letters S, G, and E and words starting from these letters. So there are traceable words Santa, Gift, and Elf. As usual, I added also a black dot to each letter to help in learning good habits while writing.
Day 8 – Alphabet tracing lowercase letters
It looks like it is the last day of this Christmas challenge for block letter tracing. For this last day, I decided to share with you this alphabet tracing page with lowercase letters. All letters are placed in the Christmas light. Each letter also has a black dot. If you want to download also uppercase letters alphabet, you can download it from the post with Christmas challenge for preschoolers and kindergarteners.
And again, if you have any idea on what can be fun to trace, I’m open to suggestions, just write me an email or here in the comment.
