Calling all Mama’s trying to do their best during Covid-19 ~ heya, me too! I’ve been having quite a good time in quarantine with my Glowforge and acrylic, so when I saw similar tracing boards to these from a big box schooling retailer, I knew I had to make them and I knew my girls would love them. The video below shows you exactly how I created these tracing boards in about 45 minutes. Stop by my craft file shop to grab our exclusive tracing board .SVG that is laser ready and easy to personalize!

My Girls Are Obsessed

These tracing boards have been a super fun addition to our homeschooling routine. I encourage my oldest to trace every day, even though she might not make it through every letter at each sitting, she just picks up where she left off. At two, Hadley is too young to trace for real, but she loves doing whatever sissy does and we talk about her name and all the letters and it’s great.

Chalk Markers

We’ve had a good experience using these Chalk Ink Markers as they are super easy to wipe off and come in lots of pretty colors, including our exclusive Something Turquoise shade! I’ve heard that dry erase work great too.
