Dog Themed Preschool Name Activity [FREE Printable]

Get a head start on preschool by teaching your child their name with this dog-themed preschool name activity. 

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

Like getting your child ready for preschool or kindergarten.

What are they supposed to know before starting school?

How are you going to teach it to them?

How can you make it fun?

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!

These dog puzzles are editable with Adobe Reader so you can enter your child’s name and begin learning in no time!

Bonus: If your child already knows how to spell their name, print out a few blank dog puzzles and have them practice writing their names on the blank puzzles.
