Complete a Dot Activities

I made these Complete-a-Dot Printable Activities for my daughter a while ago and am only now getting them up on my blog. My little girl loved matching the stickers to the right colors.

These Complete-a-Dot printable activity pages are meant to be used with three-quarter inch office labels. I bought some at the dollar store, or you could buy them on Amazon. You could also use Do a Dot markers.

Preschool Snowy Day Printables

Snowy Day Printables

My preschool daughter loves books and she also loves worksheets, so I’ve created some Snowy Day Printables to go with one of her favorite books– The Snowy Day by Ezra Keats.
