Who doesn’t love dot activity?
For kids who are dot sticker lover, or do-a-dot marker kind of person; your kids definitely want to try this Easter Dot Activity Printable.
Miss 3 loves dot sticker so much that she doesn’t need to find any excuse just to play with those little stickers.
I used to have misconception about stickers and dot stickers, especially those that are comes together at the back of our kids’ storybook.
Usually those stickers will end up on the wall, on the floor and many other places.
Little that I know stickers and dot stickers play big roles in child’s development.
I wish I knew about it sooner.
Before we hop to Easter Dot Activity, let me share with you about a little thing or two about how Dot Activities that use dot stickers and do-a-dot marker helps our kids.
Promote Pincer Grasp
I learnt a lot from this Occupational Therapist blog. One of the skills that dot stickers helps are, promoting pincer grasp.
Pincer grasp or as I understand it – finger grasp – is to help our kids hold the pencil the right way, so that they can write.
While they peel those tiny stickers using their little fingers, their pincer grasp are strengthen.
And usually they would do this repeatedly because who can resist the temptation of cute little dot stickers, right?
Dot Activity also good to help the child learn about one-to-one correspondence.
Sticking stickers to one place helps toddlers to learn that one object fits to another one object.
So as dotting do-a-dot marker in one dot. Or putting the pompom into the dot.
One-to-one correspondence is great to help kids ready for counting skills.
Those bright plain dot stickers or do-a-dot markers, are great for visual discrimination purpose.
Strong Hand Muscle for Pre-Writing
It is also suggested that our kids do sticking the dot sticker on vertical surface such as the wall to develop strong fine motor skill.
Oh I didn’t know about this before. That’s why my kids love to stick them on the wall.
It looks challenging for them but the more challenging it is, the better it’s for their hands muscle and fine motor skills.
These are all important not only for their pre-writing skills, but also important as their basic life skills.
Those basic life skills include the ability to hold their cup and plates with balance, without unintentionally dropp
Knowing this fact, my perceptions towards stickers and dot stickers has changed and I look forward to activities involving those materials.
