Tracing is a wonderful way to get your kiddo to learn writing.
Plus, it is a GREAT way to encourage fine motor skill development.
Practicing writing skills early on is important for a couple of reasons:

- Strengthens the smaller muscle groups in the hands, fingers, and arms
- Improves kids upper extremity movements with or without motor challenges
