Trace over the dotted lined of our candle tracing page, and then perhaps colour it in. Is it a Christmas candle, or a light for the Diwali Festival of Lights?
Diwali Tracing Pages
NEW! Our Diwali tracing pages are a lovely way to practise pencil control - an essential pre-writing skill - but there's no need to limit them only to your youngest children. There's plenty of more difficult pages here to keep older kids entertained, too, and once the dotted lines are traced there is colouring to be done, too! We've got a large collection of Diwali themed pages, including rangoli patterns, diya, fireworks and more...
Houses are often decorated with beautiful tapestry and cloth hangings at Diwali, in bright colours and with lots of sparkle. The first of our Diwali hanging tracing pages presents quite a detailed design for the kids to trace (and then perhaps colour in).
Here is another Diwali hanging tracing page for the kids. This one looks like it could be a bandhanwar - a pretty decoration which often has loops of beads dangling down.
The first of our diya tracing pages shows a lit diya, ready to light up the house for Diwali. Trace over the lines and then perhaps colour it in?
This pretty diya tracing page has a design of stars for the kids to trace. Younger children can trace within the channels of the dotted lines. Why not colour it in too, choosing your brightest colours? You could even add some glittery star stickers to complete the picture.
We don't use firecrackers here in the UK, but in Asia they are enjoyed at celebrations like Chinese New Year and Diwali. There is quite a lot of tracing involved in this firecrackers tracing page - good practice for the kids!
Here is a firework - the rocket type - for the kids to trace and colour. Use the channels between the dotted lines for younger children, and the lines themselves for older kids. Fun for Fourth of July, Diwali or of course Bonfire Night!
Image the sky lit up with a burst of fireworks like this one - perfect for Bonfire Night, Diwali or Fourth of July! Trace the dotted lines and then colour in the show!
Trace the dotted lines to make your very own fireworks display! This looks like a Catherine Wheel to me...
This fireworks tracing page is fun to do, but a little tricky. When you've traced over the dotted lines, why not add some of your own fireworks to the page too.
This one is my favourite of our four fireworks tracing pages. There is so much to do here! Younger children can trace between the lines with a thick felt tip pen or crayon. Older children can trace on the dotted lines and then colour in the picture.
The simple lines on our gift or present tracing page suggest that your youngest children might enjoy this worksheet, tracing in the "channels" between the dotted lines with a thick pen or crayon and then colouring the picture in.
There are lots of lines on this gifts tracing page, making it suitable for more confident children. Once the lines are drawn, they could colour it in…
Trace this traditional hanging lantern shape and then colour it in bright colours, perfect for Chinese New Year or Diwali!
This hanging lantern would be made out of bamboo, paper and tassels, and shine in the brightest, prettiest colours for Chinese New Year or Diwali. Trace of the dotted lines and then colour it in. Younger children can trace between the dotted lines too.
Our first rangoli tracing page echoes the sort of traditional rangoli design where a grid of dots is set up and then lines drawn around them in a continuous, loopy pattern. It's a real study in pencil control!
This second of our rangoli tracing pages also suggests a dotted grid, with loops forming around it. Start by drawing in the circles and then see how carefully you can trace the loops. Tricky!
Our third rangoli tracing page follows a fairly simple square design. This is a good starter tracing page for younger children, who can draw between the lines with a felt tip pen or crayon. Older kids can draw along all the lines.
This pretty rangoli design is going to be tricky to trace. Make it a little easier if you like by tracing within the lines rather than direclty on them.
Here's another simple rangoli pattern for the kids to trace. It's not only good pencil practice, but it is fun to draw the symmetrical pattern too. Younger children can trace within the dotted lines.
This tracing page has a rangoli with unusually sharp lines, but it does make it easier to trace! It's also a fun one to colour in when the tracing is one.
With a circle in the middle and squares at the corners and lots of other lines and shapes in between, this is quite a challenging tracing page for Diwali!
Pretty, looping lines raidation out of the central circle on this rangoli tracing page. Younger children can trace within the lines; older kids might light to try tracing directly on them, then colouring in their creation.
This pretty rangoli tracing page has a real "Indian" feel about it, with the star and tear-drop shapes in the centre. Trace over all the dotted lines and then perhaps try colouring it in?
