Are you looking for a simple Christmas-themed activity? These Christmas Do-A-Dot pages are not only fun, but have great learning benefits, too!
What Are Do-a-Dot Markers?
Do-a-Dot markers are great toddler and preschool friendly paint markers. They are a perfect size and easy to hold for little ones. On the end is a round sponge tip filled with paint. When you press down on the sponge, the paint comes out! You can choose to make circles by stamping or move the marker around to make lines. They are washable, too! The paint dries very quickly, which is a great when you are doing crafts with young children.
Benefits to Dot Marker Activities
When using Do-A-Dot markers on printables like the one I’m sharing today, they will need to stamp their marker on the circles. This is great for helping kids develop hand-eye coordination. Kids also strengthen fine motor skills since they are holding the dot marker and they have to press down to apply the marker to the page.
We love these do-a-dot markers, but you could also use dot stickers or regular markers to fill in the circles.
This set of printables has 20 Christmas pictures for children to fill in with dot markers. Here are the pictures included in this printable:
- candy cane
- jingle bell
- Christmas light
- milk and cookies
- snow globe
These can be used for any age! I know toddlers, preschoolers, and kindergarteners enjoy activities with dot markers.
We’ve had our markers for years and they are still in great shape! I highly recommend getting a set of Do-A-Dot markers!

Dot markers are a favorite with my preschoolers. They love the colors and the stamping; I love the skills that I can work on with them while they use it. We can always use dot markers in our little class.
Love the Do a Dot markers for rainbow colors.
Shelly M. says
We love dot markers. Love these options!
My kids love do-a-dot pages! These Christmas ones are so cute – I’m printing some off for my littles to do while I work on school with my older child. Thank you!
Dylan L. says
I have loved using dot markers (we used to call them “bingo daubers” with kids in the past. They’re another great way to practice hand-eye coordination and motor skills. I’ve used them with sheets like these, to fill shapes, to add texture to artwork (they’re great for making scales on fish or mermaid tails, etc) and to write names.
These will be great for the fine motor centers. Thanks for the printables.
Vicki Riddiough says
I’ve been interested in these types of “markers” before but have been hesitant because of the potential mess if not used properly. I think the Shimmer colors would be fun to use on the Christmas pages!
These are great for centers!
Leona Blessing says
I love dot markers. It helps with hand eye coordination and lets my students be creative. Many students are not developing the hand muscle or hand eye coordination, so the dot markers will make a difference.
Lynn Montgomery says
My daughter is homeschooling our autistic grandson. He loves doing the dot a dot activities. They are a great resource for him. I help out with his schooling and it gives us something to do together.
i love using the dot markers for literacy centers or early finishers. Thanks so much for the freebies!
These look so fun! Love that they aren’t messy!
Theses are always so fun for the kids.
Julie Chmielewski says
We love these and need some new ones!!
Kristen Fishburn says
We used Do-a-Dot markers ALL the time! We love them! I had no idea they had ice cream scented ones. So fun!!
Would love to win these! I’ve wanted them for a long time, but so expensive!
Kaleigh Williams says
My favorite way to develop hand eye coordination as well as gluing skills…just a dot…not a-lot!

These markers and the dot-a-dot printable would be so fun for little ones I know! Thanks for a chance to win!
Do A Dot Markers are great for fine motor. Shimmer Dot Markers would be so much fun. Thank you for the opportunity.
Do-a-dot markers come in better washable colors than bingo dabbers, and are great chunky tools to grab for little hands. Can’t wait to use these!
Alli J says
I LOVE this activity and I hope I win the markers because my students would enjoy dot markers. I think they work on a bunch of skills and are a quick way to find the ‘hunt’ type of work! I love it!
I haven’t seen the shimmer before!

These pictures help a few students that I work with at my school job and they have the different varieties of pictures.

I use these dot activities all the time in my classroom
I would love to have a set of Dot markers for my students. We use them to practice grasping, aiming, using the “helper hand” to stabilize the paper, etc.
I haven’t tried these yet with my 23 month old but I will soon!
I love dot markers because it keeps the kids engaged in their education.
These markers are great for little ones learning to grasp. Great for my kiddos with motor delays as well!

Annie T says
As an OT, do a dot markers would be a great tool to add for the students on my caseload to work on their fine motor skills.
Jody Kazmier says
As an OT, the dot pages and markers are a super easy to prep and a great activity for daily task box in my autism classrooms. Independent work that addressed motor planning and hand-eye coordination.

Deirdre Thomas says
I would love these markers for my 2 year old twins (grandchildren).

I love using dot markers with my kids. There is something so inviting about them, that my boys quickly jump into the activity when I pull them out. (Their great love of them is why our current set is done for and we need a fresh set! 😆)
Rebecca Severson says
My students love Do-a-Dot markers (we call them dabbers)! We typically use them when learning a new letter – they dab the circles inside of the letter. It’s great hand-eye coordination for them to practice getting the dabber inside the circle! They are always asking to do more!
My preschool class love these!! We use them for morning seat work!
My students love these pictures. Thanks for sharing
Laura P says
I love these for several reasons – they are seasonal and the kids are all about seasonal fun right now, while I’m all about seasonal fun while learning right now. WIN! Also, I have kids with visual discrimination challenges. The bright dot markers are so helpful and engaging for them! Also, the fine motor practice is great anytime! Thank you!
I would use them for arts and crafts and activities that promot creativity
My students love dot activities. It seems to calm them while they are working on these activities 🙂
Jenni Adams says
I would love to win these markers to use with my kids at school and at home! these are one of my favorite fine motor tools. From using them to make process art and working on fine motor skills to following directions.
Rachel Boni says
My students loved these in Kinder, but in 1st grade, I’ve never had them in my room. My kiddos always ask if they can do dots, so I would love a set of my own!
Nancy Shreve says
I love these as they are perfect for my grandkids and littles at school! Thank you for all of your fantastic ideas!
These would be great for my preschooler and also my daughter when we play sight word bingo.
Do a dot markers would be fantastic for my child care children. This an activity they love!
Teresa Lass says
These would be perfect for my sweet special education 1st & 2nd grade littles!

Love these for my students with little motor control; they can still create artwork independently!

My older daughter used her set so much that the foam tip started wearing away. I hope my younger son would like these just as much!

I would use the dot markers to find letters and sounds. I’m not extra creative LOL
Jeni Taylor says
These are so fun! I’d love to let my 5 year old son play with these! It would be a fun way to practice his letters and numbers!
Thank you for sharing the pages. I didn’t know they sold those sets of dot markers. I was getting mine at the Dollar Tree and they weren’t always working.
I love do a dot markers! We use them so much in our classroom and go through so many every year. Many of my students struggle with fine motor skills so this is an easier way to identify their answers.
