Great for parents or preschool teachers
This free ABC dot marker printable is great whether you are learning at home for fun, are a preschool teacher, or are doing homeschool preschool with your kiddos. I love pulling out our dot markers every few days. My kids will dob for at least thirty minutes which is nice!
Why are fine motor skills important?
Something that I love about dot marker activities is that they encourage your child to use their fine motor skills. According to Pathways.org, children should be working on their fine motor skills ever day! Pathways also says that toddlers may need extra stimulation to work their motor skills.
Dot markers are an easy way for your child to work on their fine motor skills without any mess or a lot of prep.
So, what exactly are dot markers?
Dot markers are these super cool and very toddler friendly paint markers. They are easy to grip with a round sponge tip at the end filled with paint. They are pretty much like bingo dobbers.
I personally like to use these because they don’t make a huge mess like traditional paint or markers. They are also super easy for toddlers or preschoolers to figure out. Your kids will have a ton of fun with these and won’t even know that they are working on their fine motor skills or learning their ABCs!
