When providing Occupational Therapy to kids, I often work on fine motor skills, which includes handwriting skills. I frequently will draw paths for kids to follow with their pencils, and make animals beside the path to make it fun to try to stay on the path and not get eaten. I have made these Pencil Adventures so that practicing pencil control can be fun.


  • Have the child follow the path.  You may need to tell them where they are to go first and read to them what they are supposed to do.
  • I like to laminate these and use them over and over with dry erase markers or dry erase crayons.

There are three sets of Pencil Adventures and they are all unique. You can check out the posts about them.


You can find the pencil adventures in the store as well.
