Back-to-School Handwriting Preschool Printables

Printable Back-to-School Backpack Activity for Pre-K and Kindergarten

Here is an activity that is perfect for that first week of school or for getting ready to go back to school!  Our printable backpack activity helps younger kids – preschool, pre-K and Kindergarten practice important information such as writing their Name, Address and Phone Number.

For the activity, print out the page and have kids fill out:

  • “Name” goes on the top pocket
  • “Address or city and state” goes on the map pocket
  • “Phone Number” goes on the phone face/screen.

Kids can then decorate the backpack and draw items in the top pocket (pencils, keys, snacks). The back of the page can be used to list items that need to be packed on the first day of school. For an extra activity, make a photo ID and attach it to the backpack handle with ribbon or string.
