Are dab a dot coloring pages educational?
Do a dot marker pages are an easy, no-prep activity. But are they developmentally appropriate and beneficial?
Do a dot worksheets help your child develop skills like their hand-eye coordination, grip strength, finger strength, manual dexterity, and fine motor skills.
Providing you child with plenty of opportunities to practice their fine motor skills can help prepare your child for things like tying their own shoes, drawing, and writing.
Unfortunately, educators are increasingly noticing children entering school with poor fine motor skills.
Researchers suggest this is because of increased screen time and decreased time for non-screen activities and playing with classic, low-tech toys. One study found that preschooler’s manual dexterity was inversely related to their screen time.
In other words, the more screen time the preschooler received, the worse their manual dexterity was. Screen time is also associated with behavioral problems in preschoolers.
These dot marker pages are an easy way to keep your child busy, happy, and practicing vital skills. (The photo below is my daughter enthusiastically coloring her spring do a dot pages.)
How to use dot marker printables
These pages were based on the measurement of my daughter’s Classic Do a Dot Markers. The circles are perfectly sized for this brand of markers, but they also work fine with other dauber or bingo style markers.
For an easy, no-mess activity, use these dot printables with round label stickers. Stickers add even more fine motor practice – peeling the stickers off of the page is a challenge for little fingers. Make sure to get 5/8″ or 3/4″ round stickers – 1″ round stickers are too big for the circles on the printables.
