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.
