Today I’m sharing a big set of fun and free handwriting worksheets!
So what do your kids do when it’s time to practice their handwriting? I’m guessing they don’t jump up and cheer.
Sitting down with a number 2 pencil and copying rows of letters and words… yeah, I wouldn’t be too crazy about it either.
But not to worry – I’ve created a pack of fun handwriting pages. Get out some of our favorite Pentel writing tools, and your kids will be asking to practice handwriting!
Do your kids love fun facts? My kindergartner and second grader are always telling me something fascinating.
“Mom, did you know the blue whale’s heart weighs as much as a car?”
I knew that putting some fun animal facts on each handwriting page would get their attention.
I just needed one more thing: something fun to write with. My kids and I have loved experimenting with writing tools from our sponsor, Pentel.
We started with mechanical pencils. My son liked the soft grip on the Icy mechanical pencil.
My daughter loved the Twist Erase Click. It was so fun to use… click on the side to dispense the lead, and twist the eraser when you need more of it.
My son was very interested in writing with color. He chose a red Sign Pen. When you don’t have to press hard with a pencil, you can really focus on the handwriting strokes.
We also pulled out our pack of Color Pens. (These fine point markers are so fun to write with. Right after Christmas, my kids were actually asking to write more thank you notes!)
I adore writing with gel pens. So does my daughter, who has inherited both my love for books and office products. 😉 Her favorite gel pen was Pentel’s pink metallic Slicci.
The best part about all the Pentel markers and pens? They dried so quickly that my left-handed kindergartner didn’t have a smear on the side of his hand.
Did you know?
The largest elephant ever weighed over 24,000 pounds. That’s as much as 12 cars! The elephant is the only land mammal who can’t jump. Elephants can smell water up to 12 miles away.
The pea crab is smaller than a dime, but the Japanese spider crab is 12 feet long from claw to claw. Crabs walk and swim sideways. Female crabs lay between 1,000 and 2,000 eggs.
A green iguana can be up to seven feet long. That’s longer than you! A green iguana can stay underwater for up to 30 minutes. It can live to be twenty years old.
Fun facts + fun pencils and pens = Awesome handwriting practice!
