Horizontal And Vertical Lines pt 2

Today’s post is called Horizontal and Vertical Lines Part 2 and we will be continuing our  exploration with horizontal and vertical lines . Last week we looked at 3 activities that were either fine motor or gross motor based. Let’s walk.


Aim: To expose preschoolers to horizontal and vertical lines in their surroundings.



1) Tracing Horizontal Lines
This activity is listed on page 13 of Basic Shapes for Beginners.

2) Walk the Toy
Simply add a few strips of painter’s tape (or any tape for that matter as long as it is coloured) to the floor. Choose a toy and walk the toy along the tape.  Have fun !

NOTE: Focus on walking toy in a straight line


3) Spaghetti Trouble
