Grab this free printable Do-a-Dot Marker Caterpillar spring math craft! Practice numbers the fun way- with art!
Do-a-Dot markers are SO FUN! Part paint, part marker, part stamp, they are the superhero of the kid’s art supply world and I highly recommend them for every child in your life!
Kids of all ages love them for open ended art projects- a few blank pieces of paper and a box of Do-a-Dot markers could definitely buy you enough time to make dinner.
Caterpillar Do-a-Dot Marker Activity
In addition to artistic expression, these markers have a plethora of learning activities that they are incredibly well suited for, especially counting skills and even addition practice. This caterpillar do-a-dot activity focuses on counting skills and is perfect for ages 2 to 4!
Use dot markers for best results (instead of coloring markers which have a fine tip), but you could also use colored stickers too, if your child is too young for markers. We did this with our son as early as 18 months and we all had a great experience!
Math skills are crucial and can be started very early in life. This caterpillar Do-a-Dot printable activity reinforces counting skills and also can add in color AND pattern practice!
The first time you introduce the caterpillar sheet to your child, let them pick the colors and keep the focus on the numbers.
Next time, ask them to pick two colors and practice alternating which color they use to make the dots in each row. Another time, add in another layer of fun and try the colors of the rainbow- red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple!
Create some additional sensory involvement by trying the scented Do-a-Dot markers, we have really loved them!
