# Dot Sticker Activities

My kids and I LOVE good dot sticker activities!

One of the best parts about teaching preschoolers is that you don’t need a fancy or expensive materials to help develop their skills…you can turn basically ANYTHING into a learning activity. And today, I am sharing 6 activities using dot stickers!

And yes, these activities are simple and don’t require many supplies, but don’t underestimate their effectiveness in building your preschoolers’ foundational math & literacy skills. The best part, these activities encourage learning in a fun, play-based way (which is the best way for our kids to learn) in my opinion.

Here are 6 ways to learn and play with dot stickers!

Dot Sticker Train:

• Draw a train on a piece of paper and write a letter on each of the train cars.
• Then write the same letters on the dot stickers (your train wheels) and ask your kiddo to match the wheels to the train.

Dot-to-Dot:

• Write different numbers on each dot sticker and randomly stick them to a blank piece of paper.
• Ask your preschooler to connect the dots with a marker or crayon. (If you are uber talented you can use the dots to make a picture) I'm not that talented, so I just randomly placed them all over the paper.

Number Values:

• Draw 6 different rectangles on a paper and label each of them with a number.
• Invite your preschooler to add the correct number of dot stickers.

Color Match:

Use markers (use colors that are the same as the dots) to make spots on a piece of paper.

Invite your preschooler to match the dot stickers to the correct dot on the paper.

Trace:

• Draw a line on a piece of paper. You can also create shapes or swirls for extra fun.
• Have your kiddo cover the line with dot stickers.
• You can do them in color patterns or just have fun and use any color in any order!

Name Activity:

• Print out a template or draw circles with your kiddos letters in each of the circles spelling out their name.
• Write the letters of their name on the colored dot stickers.
• Have your kiddo match the dot sticker letters to their name on the paper.

Let me know if you try any of these simple activities.
