This dot painting activity is a great activity for young kids to ring in the New Year. It’s also a fun way to teach young kids the new year.

I love how quickly you can set your kids up with dot painting worksheets. There’s minimal prep required to get started.
Download and print this 2019 dot painting worksheet on 8 1/2 x 11″ paper. I typically print these activity sheets on card stock, because it’s thicker and can absorb more paint (just in case one of the kids decides to be liberal with the dot markers).
We used Do A Dot Art! Markers to fill in our dots, but there are lots of ways you can fill in the dots. You can use bingo daubers, stickers, or pom poms as well. You can turn a clothespin and pom pom into DIY pom pom dot maker.
BENEFITS OF DOT PAINTING
Besides being mess free and easy to set up, dot painting also helps kids develop hand-eye coordination as they direct their marker to the spot on their paper. Kids strengthen fine motor skills as they hold the dot markers and move their hands to apply the marker to the paper.
Do A Dot Art Markers, are especially great for little ones. They are chunky, making it easier for their little hands to easily grab and manipulate.
