This gumball machine printable is so much fun! There are two versions of this printable. One version is meant for dot stickers for toddlers and preschoolers to learn their numbers and the other version is blank so you can use it with dot markers (also sometimes called do-a-dots) or to color with crayons or markers.

Our love of dot stickers started with this Chicka Chicka Boom Boom alphabet dot sticker activity. Next, we worked on our numbers 1-10 with an apple themed dot sticker worksheet. Now that we are counting higher, I upped the ante to include numbers 1-20. I’ve also included a blank gumball machine printable as well. You can use the blank printable as a coloring page or a dot marker page.
Why dot stickers?
I love using dot stickers to do learning activities and crafts with my toddler and my preschooler. They are easy, low mess, and low prep for me. I think my kids feel a little more independent because they can peel the stickers themselves (which is great for their fine motor skills). They’re great for doing educational activities like this one or for doing creative process artwork.
What items are needed for this activity?
This activity is really low prep. You’ll need:
- The free printable gumball machine printable (see below)
- Dot stickers
- A black pen or marker (for adults to write the numbers)
- Crayons or markers (to color the gumball machine in with, if desired)
You can also print the blank version to use with dot markers or to color with crayons or markers. I’d love to hear your other fun ideas for using the blank gumball machine printable in the comments below!
