As we near the holiday season and the upcoming Winter Break, many kids have Christmas and Santa on the brain. It can be a tricky few weeks to keep the learning engaging and fun with all the excitement in the air. So I thought it would be the perfect time to get out some of our fun holiday-themed activities like these free Letters to Santa Alphabet Tracing Printables!
*Pair with our Alphabet Centers and Activities for Pre-K & Kindergarten!
Letters to Santa Alphabet Tracing Printables
These simple alphabet tracing printables are a quick and easy activity to get some letter writing practice into your day during the holiday season!
To prep, simply choose and print out the page you wish to use (we included BOTH uppercase and lowercase) and that’s it – you are ready to trace!
How to Use the Alphabet Printables
For this activity, I like to let my students use their favorite writing tools to trace.
We used our trusty crayons (because a new box of sharp crayons is the best, isn’t it?) but I also love to use different tools like colored pencils, skinny markers, or even these fun short markers to up the engagement factor.
You could even dip q-tips in paint and trace the letters with them! Yes, it’s not as neat, but so what? It’s a blast and a fun way to learn more about letters and letter formation. I encourage you to find what works for your students and go with it!
Teacher Tip: Make this activity reusable by sliding the printables into a dry erase pocket sleeve and giving students dry erase markers to trace with!

In the classroom, I often use these printables for a morning work activity or arrival task. In this case, kids are allowed to trace the letters randomly. It’s so fun to see their little brains focused and working as they bounce around the page tracing letters!
This activity is also great for use in a small group where you could even play a beginning sound version. Simply say the letter sound and the students find the corresponding letter to trace!
The possibilities are endless with these Letters to Santa Alphabet Tracing Printables. But no matter how you use them, they’re sure to add some Christmas-themed learning fun into your lessons!
