City Planning

The aim of this handwriting activity is to practice a fluent stroke. It is important that the wrist rests relaxed on the paper and the pencil is held loosely. The pencil should be moved along the lines as smoothly as possible, without interruptions. The child may speed up as long as he or she can control the movements. Fluent strokes are important for automated and fast writing. When writing, the speed and movements must always be adapted to form the individual letters.

Required material

Colored pencils, printed templates (see resources below).

How to play

Extend your road through the paper landscape and let your creativity run wild. Where does this road lead to? Design your very own city by sketching houses, trees, and other scenery. Take a leisurely stroll through the cityscape you created with your trusty pencil.

Transform your city into a well-organized metropolis. Add roundabouts, traffic lights, and pedestrian crossings. When you reach a crosswalk, practice road safety by stopping and waiting for three seconds before continuing on your urban adventure.
