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.
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.
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.
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!

OMGosh, I love these! They are very cute and engaging! I laminated them to use with dry erase markers and asked my 12-year-old niece to “crash-dummy” them for me before we give them to my daughter, and she thought they were a blast! No complaints… well, she pointed out the typo on the “T for Turtle” page, but she’s just picky like that (am I a bad person for mentioning it? I blame her!). Thank you so much for these, and all the other resources you so generously provide!
Oops – “fexible!” I’ll put that edit on my long term to do list. It can take me a while to get edits done on freebies.
I just found your site from Jammerills site. Oh my I am thankful! I just printed 2 sets of these sheets for my 7 and 9 year old sons who need more practice. I know my older son will love all the cool facts!
I just subscribed to your blog. Thanks so much for this helpful resource! It is very well done and I also like that I didn’t have to print 200 sheets to get the whole alphabet. 🙂 Very concise and I appreciate that!
Yay – I’m so glad you found these, Kathryn – and I’m thrilled that you’ve joined us as a subscriber! 🙂
I love your worksheets!! First time homeschooling and your resources have helped me out so much!! Thank you. Keep up the awesome work!
Thanks, Brandi! I hope to be doing this for many years!
Excellent resource! The animal fact at the top is a wonderful idea!
Thank you, Bethany!
I am so grateful for these pages. I work in South Africa among a disadvantage community and it is wonderful to be able to just print these sheets and not pay an arm and a leg for workbooks.
I appreciate this generosity.
I’m so happy to hear that these are helpful for you and your students, Marinda! thank you so much for your comment.
Thank you really very much for sharing with all of us all this great work!!
I started using the letters sheets with my son, but when I try to print the animal fun facts handwritting pages, I have problems, I can see the fact and the animal, but all the place to write the letters is covered in black. Can you maybe help me?
I’m sorry to hear that, Marta… that’s very strange because it prints for me. Have you tried looking at this page? It might have a solution for you. https://www.themeasuredmom.com/how-to-download-free-files/
I am having the same problem with the black over the letters…..I hope I can get it to work, my son would love these pages!! Thank you sooo much for sharing!
