Are do a dot coloring pages educational?
Do a dot marker pages aren’t just no-prep fun – they’re beneficial for your child.
Do a dot worksheets can help your child develop skills like their hand-eye coordination, grip strength, finger strength, manual dexterity, and fine motor skills.
Educators are increasingly noticing children entering school with poor fine motor skills.
Researchers think this is because of increased screen time and decreased time for other non-screen activities. 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.
Life with a preschooler can be challenging. Sometimes you just really, really need a minute of peace and quiet to yourself. That’s why I created these dot marker printables – so you can have a fun, easy activity on standby and ready for any time you need sometime for your child to do.
Of course, these Valentine’s dot marker printables can also make a great addition to your planned homeschool preschool lessons!
If you want to learn more about the domains of school readiness and make sure your preschooler is developing all the important skills they need, make sure to check out the guide below:
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 style markers. According to Amazon, I ordered them on May 19, 2019. I haven’t purchased any additional markers – they’re still working fine after more than a year and a half of frequent use.
For an easy, no-mess activity, use these dot printables with round label stickers. This makes a great quiet activity for car rides, plane trips, and doctor’s offices. Make sure to get 5/8″ or 3/4″ round stickers – 1″ round stickers are too big for the circles on the printables.
