## What are dot markers?

Dot markers are awesome. They’re little bottles of paint with a round sponge tip. When you turn them upside down, the paint soaks through the sponge to make a dot on your paper.

They’re great fun to use and they don’t spill or make a gigantic mess (like our usual painting activities so often do).

Dot marker activities are great for young children. They’re not only fun to do, but they’re brilliant for developing fine motor skills and practising hand-eye coordination.

## Tell me about these printables!

This set of printables consists of four pages of dot marker shapes. There are eight shapes included (two shapes per page).

The printables feature the following shapes: square, rectangle, circle, oval, triangle, heart, star and rhombus.

Complete each picture with just one colour, or get creative and go multi-coloured.

As your child is completing these shape activities, you can talk with them about the properties of some of the shapes. For example, does the square have straight or curved sides? How many corners does it have?

If you’ve finished the printables and want to do a bit more math, try counting the number of dots inside each shape. Which shape contains the most dots and which one has the least?

After you’ve finished, you can cut these sheets in half so that you end up with eight colourful shape cards. These are great for putting on the wall or displaying in your homeschool or classroom.
