Dots and Spots Theme

Dots and Spots Theme 

Show them some paper circles  different sizes and talk about sometimes circles have a different word to mean the same thing- spot, dot, polka dot, circle, round. We are going to share a story today where you will see how we see dots in things everyday! ( Lots of Dots book)

Use the parachute with kids and parents 10 minutes if they need to move around or if there is extra space before craft time-- large flat sheet or tablecloth works too!
  • Lift up with kids holding handles say peek a boo
  • Put it down to the ground again
  • Lift high so kids can go under
  • Have kids lay on their backs with belly facing parachute and see if it touches their belly
  • Walk in a circle holding the handles
  • Have kids help put a couple of balls on the parachute each and shake them up like popcorn
  • Use paper circles on the parachute and shake them around
