I planned this activity without having any idea of how it would work out (not the wisest choice, i might add). In then end the goal was accomplished; Little M and her cousin TL had fun, talked about the Letter D, and even played around with the D sound. I think we can call Dogs from Dots a success!
what you need: Letter D ~ stamp pad ~ construction paper ~ colored pencils
I used white on white for the Letter D, it is kind of hard to see in the photo but it looked really cool in person. Once the D was ready I gave the kids the stamp pad and had them stamp Dots all over their D.
I gave Little M and TL colored pencils and asked them to make their dots into dogs.
To prove that you actually can make these dots in to adorable little doggies I meant to take a picture. . .before little M completed it. Unfortunately I was too late so you may have to get out your magnifying glass to get a good look.
