Preschool Tracing Idea on Dry-Erase Folders

When one hears about clear durable plastic folders, most people think “organization”. You know, office supplies or school supplies…the usual. When *I* saw these colorful plastic folders, my mommy brain imagined they’d be perfect to have around little ones. I’m happy to have ordered and received them to discover I was correct!
Of course, you’ll love these lightweight folders to store papers in. Up to 50 pages fit easily in each one, in fact! With my 6-pack of rainbow colors, I used half for typical folder purposes – bills, recipes (I’m a hard-copy kinda gal), and my essential oils classes resources.
But with the other three, the lighter three colors…I found the perfect home for our tracing printables. Not only can the worksheets be nicely stored inside the folders, my preschooler can easily dry-erase on the outside. Between the colors and the idea of writing on something he usually can’t…he enjoyed this activity and focused on it longer than most things these days! When he made a mistake, he found he could easily erase his work with his finger, paper towel, or even a baby wipe. Because, #plastic.
We use some tracing pages he brings home from preschool, and some words he’s interested in learning that I write on lined paper. One folder has his first name on one side and last name on the other side of the folder, made from this free name tracing printable. The Powerful Mothering website has so many great activities there, so I also printed their counting and tracing numbers printable. You’ll find many uses for this dry-erase folder idea, including drawing practice or just plain imaginative doodling.
I’ve always been an office product junkie…which is extra sad when putting it in writing. 🤔🤷♀️ I admit I was thrilled to try many products from STEMSFX and love the colorful organization they bring to my home and life. Buy these plastic folders in packs of 6 or 12, assorted colors, or pick your favorites. Our little tracing folders here have survived car trips, food and drink spills, and being strewn about without ripping, so we will be using these in the future to endure long school years in and out of backpacks and lockers. That mommy brain and heart of mine can’t bear to think about those days yet though, so let’s just keep enjoying them while they’re little! <3
