Visual Motor Worksheets

printable visual motor and drawing worksheets

On this page I review a variety of great quality printable visual motor worksheets that can be used to help develop your child's visual-motor integration skills.

Each download contains worksheets which range from easy to difficult, so each child from Kindergarten through Early Elementary can start right where they are at and progress from there. This works really well if you are working with or homeschooling kids of different ages!

The wide variety will keep your child interested and focused - you can use a worksheet from a different e-book each day!

But before you start... have you done any other visual motor activities with your child? Visual-motor integration is an important preskill for handwriting, but it cannot be developed just by doing visual motor worksheets.

First read my indepth article on visual-motor integration first, and try out some of the activities suggested.

Then come back to hone your child's skills with these pencil-and-paper worksheets. (PS Do you know what to look for in visual motor worksheets? On my new page, I explain how they work)

Visual Motor Exercises

My children love these LONG visual motor activities. We print them out, stick them together and laminate them to make them last.

Only $4.99!

There are 25 long mazes and patterns of various difficulty, and once the pattern is assembled (very easy to do) it is 28 inches long! Each page contains 3 strips which get stuck together to make one long path. Print them out, stick the paths together and laminate them to make them last.

Kids are encouraged to work from left to right, cross their midline, and develop visual-motor integration skills.

When I use them, I have the child go over the path a number of times with different colors of wipe-clean markers.

Included in the Visual Motor Bundle Deal at a 30% discount! Also included in the Preschool Visual Motor Bundle Deal.

Size: 9MB
Printing: Black and White. (I added color to the paths with a marker before laminating.)  You may reprint this resource as often as you need to.

Patterns, Patterns, Patterns

One of the best value-for-money books with more than 50 worksheets that address a whole range of visual perceptual skills.

Patterns of objects make up the majority of the worksheets (hence the name!)

Only $4.99!

The first 8 pages of visual discrimination worksheets involve visually scanning from left to right in order to find the given items, so I would recommend that you sit opposite your child to make sure he/she is scanning to find the objects and not jumping all over the place visually.

There are worksheets that require figure-ground perception and visual closure. There are quite a few worksheets that practice visual-motor skills.

If your child has poor pencil skills: he/she can point out the answers, or trace with their fingers.

There are visual motor puzzles in grid format where the child needs to copy lines or shapes in a grid. These are suitable for older kids to draw, but for younger kids or for those who have poor pencil skills, I prefer to adjust the activity as follows:

I make 2 copies of each page, and cut out one set of the images and then have the child position the pictures on the grid as shown alongside. This works on spatial perception as well as matching skills.

The other visual motor exercises can be traced with a finger if pencil control is poor

Size: 3 MB
Printing: All pages are in black & white. You may reprint this resource as often as you need to.

Included in the Mini and Mega Visual Perceptual Bundles and in the Visual Motor Bundle at a 30% discount!

Follow The Path

Dot-to-Dot pictures have long been used to develop visual motor and copying skills.

Laminate these to be used as write-and-wipe activities.

Only $3.99!

The dot worksheets have small images of animals for the kids to link up - a nice motivator and shows them where to start and end. The images are found on both the original path and on the blank dots that the child must copy.

These visual motor worksheets are graded from easy (vertical and horizontal lines) to more difficult (diagonal lines) to quite challenging.

There are over 30 dot-to-dot diagrams in all, plus blank templates for you to make your own.

Included in the Visual Motor Bundle Deal at a 30% discount!

Size: 5.5 MB
Printing:  B&W printing works well. Only the tiny images on each page are in color, and it is easy enough to color those in with a marker. You may reprint this resource as often as you need to. I also laminated these pages to use them over and over!

Monster Mazes

Designed for use inside CD cases (a novel idea for write on-wipe off), they can also be used as they are, which is 2 activities on a page.

Only $3.99!

The title "mazes" is a bit inaccurate, as it leads one to believe these are mazes for figure ground perception. Although some of the activities do have overlapping lines which require figure-ground skills, this is actually a lovely collection of graded visual motor activities that range from easy to quite tricky.

You will get:

  • 9 pages of visual motor paths and tracing lines
  • 2 pages of visual scanning activities
  • 2 pages of "follow the path" dot pictures
  • and 2 pages of challenging visual motor drawing activities, in addition to a few more uncategorized activities!
A wide variety of worksheets!

The monsters are very cute and not at all scary! Included in the Visual Motor Bundle Deal at a 30% discount!

Size: 8MB
Printing: Although the monsters are in color, which adds interest, the pages print well in Black and White. Only a handful of the activities need color printing.  You may reprint this resource as often as you need to.

Crossing Paths

24 visual motor worksheets with a difference, as they also require motor planning and visual scanning skills.

Only $1.99!

Motor planning, visual motor and visual scanning skills are needed to get the frog or car to their destination, going through numbered objects in sequence, without the path crossing over itself!

So it should really have been called "Not-Crossing Paths" as your child needs to scan and plan carefully so the path does not cross!

The 24 puzzles are graded from easy to difficult. Ideally, have your child plan their path using a finger before using a pencil or crayon.

Alternatively, laminate the worksheets and use wipe-off markers so a child can erase mistakes and replan their paths.

Included in the Visual Motor Bundle Deal at a 30% discount!

Size: 8 MB

Printing: The pages are all in color, but still print well in black and white. You could print your favorites in color and then laminate them to save costs. You may reprint this resource as often as you need to.

Grid Drawing

Great for visual-motor integration and copying skills!

Only $2.99!

These grid drawings are presented in both color and black&white versions

They range from easy (where a child only has to add a couple of small lines to complete a drawing) to difficult (where the child needs to pretty much copy the entire drawing on the grid alongside), so it is good for a range of ages and skills.

This set of visual motor worksheets requires that your child use spatial perception as well as visual discrimination to see which lines are missing. Encourages attention to detail.

Size: 23MB
Printing: There are color and black and white versions of each grid, so you can choose which you prefer.

Included in the Drawing Bundle Deal at a 30% discount!

Graph Paper Drawings

These grid drawings are presented in two different formats: completing half a picture and copying a complete picture.

Great for visual-motor integration and copying skills!

Only $3.99!

Complexity ranges from simple 4-by-4-block grids to more complex grids, and includes vertical, horizontal and diagonal lines. Your child will be tracing along the lines, and/or going from corner to corner for diagonal lines.

At the beginning, your child will need to be prompted to start and stop on the corners, to plan the direction of the line and to copy one line at a time.

These visual motor worksheets make a great companion to Grid Drawings above - you can alternate the easy pictures from each book and then increase to harder worksheets from each book, to hold your child's interest.

(The Grid Drawings book contains curved lines and can therefore be more challenging than this one at times.)

Size: 1MB
Printing: Black and White. You may reprint this resource as often as you need to.

Let's Hang Out

Learn to draw simple figures.
Great for visual-motor integration and copying skills!

Only $1.99!

This cute pack helps your child learn to draw simple figures with step by step instructions. Your child will be using visual-motor integration and copying skills to add the lines to each step of the drawing until it is completed.

Helpful Tip:
Many children with visual motor integration delays will find this quite tricky and will need help working out where to start on the page, how long to make their lines etc.

Sit with your child for the first sheet or two, and give some verbal assistance like "do you think you drew the arm as long as that one? Should we draw it longer?", "Where on the page does the head go - all the way up there or down a little?"

 The dual format allows you to either do the drawings on their own, or to do the drawings as part of a hangman game. (There are even letters to trace at the bottom to help your child along in the hangman game). There are 10 sheets of each, helping your child learn to draw a dog, cow, cat, monkey, lion, butterfly, boy, girl, princess and surfer.

I personally really like the individual drawing sheets, and this is a bargain price! Included in the Drawing Bundle Deal at a 30% discount!

Size: 2.5 MB
Printing: Black and White. You may reprint this resource as often as you need to.
