When you’re a mom trying to balance it all, there are some things that feel like a monumental challenge.

How are you going to teach it to them?

I can totally relate to this feeling.

Preschool Dog Name Activity

Pretty soon, I’m going to have a 3-year-old and that means I need to start teaching him some basic things.

Things like the alphabet, numbers, shapes, colors and recognizing his name.

While we’re still working on the alphabet, I’ve had several readers ask me for some printables related to teaching kids their name, so I created these dog name puzzle printables.

Teach your kids their name the easy way with this fun and interactive dog puzzle name activity. Great for preschoolers or kindergarteners. It's free so download now!
