Australian Dot Art Printables - Do-a-Dot Page fpr Australian Homeschool Unit Study

1. Print out the patterns onto colored paper or what paper depending on what technique you want to use and the age of your students.

2. The images above where made by dipping the handle ends of a paint brush into acrylic paint and then dotting it onto the paper. Provide larger and smaller brushes for larger and smaller dots.

3. If you have younger children, you may want to use large markers for less mess. Print the patterns out onto white paper instead of using colored paper so the markers will show up well.

4. Preschool children will enjoy decorating the images with dotters which make much larger dots.
