This darling set of animal dot marker coloring pages couldn’t be any cuter! Do a dot coloring is one of the easiest activities to prepare for children ages 3-5 and up. All you need for this quiet time activity are dauber style markers, a printer and paper. Youngsters love using these fun markers while combining their favorite colors to create a masterpiece to showcase.
Within this set of coloring page printables you’ll find charming critters: a hedgehog, a hamster, a horse, and a ferret. We’ve also included some pet friends: a kitty, a puppy, a parrot, a goldfish and a bunny rabbit.
When my children were younger I used coloring pages like these as conversation and story starters. Encourage your little one to tell you about their picture. Ask simple questions such as:
- What is your animal’s name?
- Where does your animal live?
- Who are its friends?
- What does it like to eat?
- If this animal was your pet, how would you take care of it?
Such discussions build language skills, spark creativity and imagination, and will make a lasting impression on your little one as quality time spent with you.
