Do-a-Dot Numbers

Sweet Pea is 5 years old.
 

 

From:  Here are the Do-A-Dot number pages!    A long time ago, I created a set of uppercase Do-A-Dot letters and since then, many people have asked me to also create number ones.   These Do-A-Dot sheets are tedious to make so it took me a while to get them finished, but I am finally done!

 Material:

  • Do-A-Dot Markers.  (We have the, slightly more interesting, Brilliant color set.) 
  • Do-A-Dot Number Worksheets.
  • A plastic tablecloth, tray or at least some extra papers (to prevent the Do-A-Dot  ink from staining your table).
  • A smock or bib (optional).

   Procedure:

  • Print of a few of the Do-A-Dot Number Pages.
  • For younger tots, you may have to remove the screw cap on the markers.
  • If your tot has not worked with a Do-A-Dot marker before, select one sheet and show how him how to press straight down with the marker to make a colored dot inside one of the circles.
  • Give your tot a few of the number sheets and allow him to fill in the dots on his own.

Observations: Sweet Pea was excited to see the return of Do-A-Dot sheets.  After a couple of sheets, she decided to make things a little more interesting, and used all of the Do-A-Dot markers to create a colorful pattern.

In the picture below, Sweet Pea was upset because the green marker had gotten contaminated with some pink ink.  🙂

As I anticipated, this activity didn’t hold Sweet Pea’s attention as long as it did the last time.  She only did about about 5 of the pages before she was was ready to move on to something else.  I think these are just bit too simple for her now, but she still had fun with them.

I don’t know what it is about these types of worksheets, but little kids seem to love filling them in the  Do-A-Dot markers.  I highly recommended it for all little kids.

Notes from the Trenches:   Sweet Pea loves Do-A-Dot markers, but they will seep through the Do-A-Dot page and stain whatever is below.  Make sure you put down a plastic table cloth or another piece of paper.  This is a picture of the paper that we kept below the sheets that Sweet Pea stamped.  They will stain skin too, and despite what the packaging says, I have not found them to be 100% washable.
