How to Use Do a Dot Pages
Do a Dot Markers
The most classic way to use dot pages is with dot markers! Have your child take his or her dot marker and fill in the dots!
Have your child count out how many balls he or she needs of play dough to fill the dots. Then have him or her begin to roll that many dough balls. It is the perfect way to add counting to the learning and exploration of the dot pages.
Finally, have your child use the playdough balls to do dot counting as he or she fills in the dots!
Did you know you can make your own playdough? It is super easy. Go check out our recipe here:
Another favorite of toddlers and preschoolers is stickers! Put your child’s love of stickers to good use by using them alongside do a dot pages!
Supply your child with dot stickers and have him or her use dot stickers to fill in the dots. Your child will really put his or her fine motor skills to work here as they try and place the stickers in exactly the right way on the dot pages.
Have you ever tried playing with loose parts? Loose parts are open-ended materials that a child can manipulate, move, and adapt in play and exploration.
Loose parts can be found in nature such as rocks and shells or be made such as wooden loose parts. We love using our wooden loose parts to fill in our dot pages.
This way we can reuse our dot pages over and over! We love to use our loose parts and dot pages to explore numbers by counting out how many we will need to fill the dot page and then placing them on the page!
Another toddler and preschool favorite activity has to be gluing. We often use our dot pages with pom poms and glue. Have your child place glue dots inside the dot on the dot page and then cover with pom poms!
Saved for last is using paint and your child’s fingertip! It’s definitely the messiest one but oh so much fun!
Supply your child with a small amount of paint and have him or her fill in the dots on the dot pages with his or her fingertips! It makes for the most perfect printable craft!
