- If you use bags with writing, use fingernail polish remover to remove the writing
- tape the bag to the table or light panel for easier use
- tape closed if you are concerned the child will open the bag
- tape to a window for children who are not developmentally ready for fine motor tracing - having the bag on the window requires more gross motor body movements

Multisensory/Tactile Tracer Bags
*FOR OLDER CHILDREN OR CHILDREN WHO ARE INTERESTED IN LETTER TRACING*
This is just another version of the SQUISHY BAG.
Its another style that I made when I was teaching children with autism....and I wanted to share it. The letter style is based on the developmental level and learning style of each individual child. You can draw dotted lines with green and red dots - green means go, red means stop - to teach letter formation or just draw regular letters/numbers. The dots always seemed very discombobulated to me, but some children really thrived with that style instruction.
I used snack pack sized storage bags and used a Sharpie marker to write letters for tracing.
