* with dot markers, also called bingo markers. You can find them on amazon, at a craft store (we got ours at Michaels with a coupon), or as bingo markers at the dollar store. The actual dot markers are non-toxic, which is why I went with that option. I can't vouch for the bingo markers.
* with any small round object (flat marbles, pom poms, pennies, and bingo chips are some of the most popular).
* put it on an oil drip pan, fridge, cookie sheet, or magnet dry erase board and use with these magnets or create your own.
Here is how we are going to use the page. First, I am going to color around the blank dots in the colors of the hat (red on top, white next, then alternating down). I provided the printable in black and white to save on ink for myself and everyone else. You're welcome :) If there is a high demand for a color version, I am happy to provide one, though! If your child is old enough, you can have them do the coloring before you laminate it for some more fine motor fun. Once the page is colored and laminated, we are going to use a combination of red pom poms and cotton balls (I don't think I have enough white pom poms) to fill in the blank dots and complete the pattern. This activity works fine motor skills and coordination (coloring if your child participates in that, dot markers, or using fingers, tongs, tweezers or chopsticks to place the manipulatives on the dots), 1:1 correspondence and counting skills, color recognition, color matching, and patterning. That's quite a lot out of one simple black and white worksheet!
If you do use this worksheet and blog about it, please be sure to link back to my blog so others know where to get the file. I would also love it if you would let me know that you used it so I can visit your blog and see it in action! I will be sure to post pictures of Boogie too :)
