Inside: These dot numbers 1-10 printables are a fun way to work on fine motor while also strengthening counting skills and number recognition!
Toddlers and preschoolers love hands-on activities, so I kept that in mind when creating these dot numbers 1-10 printables.
Invite your children to count the circles on each number and then place a small object on each one, or use a dot marker or sticker.
Start with lower numbers and build as they are ready!

What you will need:
- Dot Numbers 1-10 Printables (scroll down to find free download)
- Small objects, Stickers, Markers (see suggestions below)
Preparing this activity:
After making copies, place desired number(s) at the table along with desired objects, stickers or markers.
For younger children, start with just one or two numbers on the lower end.
As children are ready, move to the higher numbers.
How to play:
Recognize the number on the sheet and how many circles on on the number.
Notice that the number of circles is the same as the number itself?
For example, the number 3 has three circles on it.
Then, if using objects, place one object on top of each circle, counting while doing so.
A sticker can also be used, or a dot marker.
You just want to make sure something is on each circle on the number.
Buttons are a fun way to work on fine motor skills while transferring them to the circles on the numbers.
We prefer slightly larger buttons, such as these ones, and they fit nicely in the circles.
However, you can use whatever buttons you happen to have on hand.
Another choice is using pom poms. Use the same method as the buttons, placing one on each circle.
We love using dot markers for a variety of activities, and they work well with these printables.
Count how many circles on on the number, noticing it’s the same as the number itself. (The number eight has 8 circles.)
Then, press the dot marker on each circle.
Another option is using circle stickers.
Simply remove the correct amount of circles from the sticker page and add one to each circle on the number.
