This Llama Llama Red Pajama themed tracing activity invites your children to work on their fine motor skills and create a fun quilt. Children will have fun creating the stitching on their quilt strips with a variety of different writing tools. Then they will cut out the quilt patches or blocks from the strips. Finally they will place each quilt block on the bed printable.

Working on the Llama Llama Red Pajama Quilt
If you haven’t read the book Llama Llama Red Pajama to your children, you will want to start by having them listen to the book.
Then you need to let them know that they are going to be creating the stitching for the quilt by tracing the lines on several strips of tracing lines.
Next, your children will select three colored strips of tracing lines and writing tools to trace the lines with. They could use a different tool for each strip if they like.
Here are some writing tools your children could use:
- Primary Size or Regular Sized Pencils
- Colored Pencils
Then your children will cut out each of the quilt blocks from the strip. (They should have three blocks from each strip.)
When all the blocks are cut out, they can glue them to their bed printable to create a quilt for Llama Llama.
