Welcome! On this website you can find a good variety of FREE animal dot-to-dots for your children. I have some to teach your child Roman Numerals, to count by twos, count by fives, and normal dot-to-dots which simply count by ones. You can also find dot-to-dots that are just for fun. It all depends on your child's age.
Some are detailed, some are simple, some are cute, and some are really silly. There are many types of animals on here, including horses, tree snakes, chickens, moose (they make great dot-to-dots!), beagles, doves, hyenas, and much more! If the type of animal you want is not included, contact me, and I'll try to make one!
You can download these dot-to-dots one-by-one and print them for free (as PDF files). Also, you can choose to purchase ALL my animal dot-to-dots as a book, only the easy ones, only the mdeium/hard dot-to-dots, or only the dot-to-dots counting by ones, on my Books page. Also, I have a Thanksgiving Activity Pack with many types of activities! It's on the Books page too.
Some of my dot-to-dots must have the last dot connected to the first, unlike many 'common' dot-to-dots, so those are marked with a (!). Recently, less of my dot-to-dots are marked, however, because I don't make dot-to-dots the same anymore.
With many dot-to-dots, pencil won't look the best when the dot-to-dot is finished, so you should use a marker pen or Magic Markers. Some have small dots, and on those a normal pen will work.
Tell your child to pay attention to the dot-to-dot and its numbers. Many times I have not been paying full attention when doing a dot-to-dot, and thus didn't look closely to the numbers. When several dots where 'hiding,' a bit off to the side, I sometimes didn't notice and jumped to the closest dot. The closest dot is not always the next one - pay attention to the numbers!
Some people call dot-to-dots 'join-the-dots' or 'connect-the-dots.' None of them are wrong, people just call things different names. I, of course, have to use 'dot-to-dot' most of the time - that's my website name and everything. But, I try to sneak the other words in sometimes.
