Inside you'll find the most adorable Construction Themed Alphabet Tracing Cards for practicing letter recognition with preschoolers you've ever seen. These happy little cards are just what you need to keep those little hands busy and work on tracing and letter recognition!
Are you looking for a cute and engaging way to help your child practice their letter recognition and correct letter formation?
These Construction Alphabet Tracing Cards are the perfect activity to do together. They’re themed around one of my son's current favorite things. There has been a lot of construction happening around our house lately, so my kids are extra interested in all things construction.
And why wouldn't they love it?! The big trucks are a big hit here. They're light enough that kids can still see their letters while tracing, but bright enough so kids can still see the fun dump truck on their tracing sheets.
You can clip these dump trucks off and use them as letter cards in sensory bins too.
Your child will love tracing the alphabet along these construction vehicle cards. It’s such a great way to spend time together while also helping them develop important skills that they need later on for writing.
These cards can be used as part of a construction, vehicle, or community helpers curriculum.
What are the Benefits of Tracing Cards?
Our favorite way to use alphabet tracing cards is with dry erase markers. Laminate, then cut them out so you can use them over and over.

Talking about the alphabet with these printables is a no-brainer. There are few opportunities as amazing as during play to learn.
When your child is done with drawing letters on these cards, fill a baking dish with shaving cream and have children trace the letter into the shaving cream. Kids love the big messes they can make, and shaving cream is easy to clean up (especially if they leave it inside the baking sheet)

What Do You Need For Construction Alphabet Cards
As always, I recommend putting all of this together ahead of time to keep the unnecessary chaos out of our lives. New things–like this colorful and fun printable– are so exciting for kids, so it's hard to keep their excited wiggly feelings under control.
That's totally normal.
I like to get all of the laminating and cutting out of the way before I bring this out to them instead of print it out and put it together while they're sitting with me.
Here is the list of everything you need.

How to Use Construction Themed Tracing Task Cards
These lacing cards are easy peasy to use.
If you have a laminator available, simply laminate the cards before use so they will last longer. This is the perfect way to ensure your construction task cards can be used again next year or for little roadway themed literacy activity all year long.
You can also create task boxes, by printing them all, laminate, cut them out, and store them in the boxes with a few different dry erase markers. To ensure children can access them easily and independently.
Preparing your Printable for Use
- Print the lacing cards on heavy cardstock (grab your printable here)
- Laminate then cut them out and allow students to trace the letters they see.

Why Alphabet Tracing Cards?
I created these cards with the idea that they would be used with dry erase markers as alphabet tracing cards.
This means, put simply, your child will use the card as a guide to write on top and practice their letters. There are so many ways to try this.
Since then, I've seen them used SO many different ways. You can ask your child which way they would prefer too.
Other Fun Ways to Use This Construction Activity for Kids
My kids LOVE adding different variations to these. Sometimes they will cut off the letter with the truck as the background and play hide and seek around the house. When the others find a letter they bring it to me and tell me a letter and what sound it makes.
We have also used them with a sensory bin to write the letter, or find pieces if they decide to cut them apart.
