Christmas Lights Dot Marker Printable
Are you ready for another fun Christmas activity to use with your little ones? I can’t wait for you to use this Christmas Lights dot marker worksheet with your toddlers and preschoolers.
Do you have a little one that loves to work with dot markers? If so, you’ll love this hands-on learning activity.
Building fine motor skills is important for little ones. These muscles will help your child with handwriting, buttoning buttons, tying shoes, and so much more.
This holiday activity encourages kids to practice color recognition and color matching. They’ll also strengthen hand-eye coordination as they dot each circle.
PREPARING THE ACTIVITY
All you need to do to prepare this activity is print and go. If you want to use pom poms or playdough instead of dot markers, you can laminate the page. If you don’t have a laminator, you can slip it into a dry erase pouch.
Laminating (or using the pouch) allows kids to use this activity page over and over again. The playdough won’t stick to the paper.
USING THE PRINTABLE
This is a simple activity to use with little ones. Provide dot markers in every color you see on the worksheet – yellow, green, purple, blue, and red.
Have your child identify the color of each light. Now, have them fill in the blank spaces on each light with matching dot marker dots (or playdough balls, pom poms, etc).
For toddlers who aren’t quite ready for color matching, let them just work on filling the holes. It’s not too early to start strengthening fine motor skills.
If you don’t have playdough, you can use other items to fill in those holes. Use buttons, dot markers, or even crayons to complete the activity.
