Thanksgiving Line Tracing Activity Sheets
Before learning how to write letters and numbers, you need to know how to write lines and curves that form the basis of all writing.
So as your kiddos learn how to write, make it fun with line tracing activity sheets! It is a great way for you and your little ones to spend time together while learning.
The goal of the activity is simple – trace the lines from left to right, from one Thanksgiving-themed picture to the other.
There are all sorts of lines to trace – wavy, straight, zig-zag, diagonal, and circular. Some will be more tricky than others for little hands, but it is an awesome way for children to improve their fine motor skills.
The free printable worksheets have a Thanksgiving theme. On one of the sheets, the lines start at a pumpkin on the left and end with a pumpkin treat on the right, and the other starts with different people helping to make Thanksgiving dinner!
As an additional activity, the line tracing sheets have a black-and-white version to color in with pencils or crayons, as well as a colored version.

Suggested Art Supplies
I like to keep a good stash of art supplies to always be ready when my nieces and nephews come to visit. You don’t need all the things on my suggested art supplies list, but I wanted to share some of my favorites with you that work well with my free printable worksheets!
- I love Crayola Super Tips – they come in boxes of various amounts – I’ve got the 100 count box as you can never have too many colors!
- If your child (or you!) prefers to use crayons, I don’t think you can go wrong with classic Crayolas, again they come in various counts.
- Prefer colored pencils? I really don’t think you can go wrong with Crayolas for coloring!
- They also have fun scented pencils which will no doubt bring coloring pages alive with smells!
- Does your child like to paint? I bought this Arteza Kid’s Watercolor Kit for my 6-year-old niece and she loves it!
- Want to add some sparkle? Add glitter! Crayola has a 25 count set, and a 9 count set of glitter glue.
- For puzzle and activity sheets, make sure you have writing pencils, an eraser, and a pencil sharpener.
- Highlighter pens are perfect for marking off words in Word Search Puzzles.
