Fall Dot to Dot Printable
Fall activities are a favorite in our house and this year bats are taking the top spot in our crafts and educational activities. Spending time learning the habits of bats and other nocturnal animals inspired me to share a fall-themed dot-to-dot printable worksheet this month! Count and draw lines from numbers 1-15 to make a bat shape that kids can color or cut for a fine motor skills activity. The bat-shaped dot-to-dot has large dots and is set in numerical order which makes this a fun math activity too.
Draw lines between the dots from A-Z to develop letter recognition and fine motor skills. Once kids have completed the entire alphabet they’ll see that they’ve drawn a pumpkin. Included in the printable pack are two pumpkin options: a plain pumpkin and a jack-o-lantern. Color in the pumpkin and use it as a decoration for a school harvest festival. We cut out our pumpkins and bats after coloring them and then glued them to paper for some spooky but fun fall décor.
Number and Letter Recognition: Draw lines between the dots
Fine Motor Skills: Cut around the shape following the lines.
Art: Color the bat and pumpkin, cut them out, and glue them to a piece of construction paper.
Get Up and Play!
A fun activity we like to do with our dot-to-dot shapes is to color them, cut them out, and tape or glue them to a popsicle stick. We have a little puppet show with our fall popsicle stick characters. Kids create personalities for their puppets. Set up a small puppet theatre by draping a blanket or piece of fabric between two chairs. Kids can sit behind the blankets and give their friends a puppet show!
