If he likes to color, you could give him more fun opportunities to color and draw using his own creativity.  At 3 years old being "ready to write" doesn't have to be formal writing of letters.  Coloring, playing with playdo or clay, pinching clothes pins in a game style activity, squeezing a soft ball in hands etc.  These are all fine motor activities that are less formal and still fun for a three year old.
