Fun St. Patrick’s Day Dot Marker Printables
Dot Marker Art Printables
Kids love do a dot art pages, and who can blame them! In this pack, we have included 6 different images.
Included in this bundle are:
- Pot of gold
- Leprechaun hat
We know how much kids love to do these do a dots over and over again so we have created a black and white version (to save your color ink) and a full-color version.
With the black and white version, they can use their dot markers and then color the rest of the page however they would like.
If you choose to print the color version try laminating them for endless fun. We usually pick up some manipulatives to help kids with their fine motor skills of picking up and placing the objects in the circles.
Some great object ideas are bingo chips, pom pom balls, or small pieces of cereal. Doing things like this really helps strengthen those small muscles in the hand.
If you want to get really creative then you can grab a pair of kids’ tweezers and have your kids pick up the objects with tongs and place them within each circle. We guarantee kids will love doing this!

Graphing is a great beginning math skill for kids.
