Dot to Dot




1. On a piece of paper, create a dot-to-dot page. Use a few dots for younger children (no more than 10), and more for older children (1 to 20).
2. Place dots to create a form the children will recognize after they have connected the dots. You can begin with simple items, such as a ball, a star, a doll, a dog, and so on.
3. Place numbers in sequential order beside the dots.
4. Have the children connect the dots in sequential order to find out what the item is.
5. Invite the children to make their own dot-to-dot pictures.
