Preschool Worksheets: Thanksgiving Do a Dot Printables
I’m Katie from Gift of Curiosity, and I’m thrilled to be back at Crystal & Co. to share my Thanksgiving-themed do-a-dot printables. One of the things I love best about blogging is the opportunity to create fun, educational printables for kids that I can share with parents and caregivers. I have a special passion for created themed printables for holidays and other educational units in our homeschool preschool. In anticipation of the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday, I have been busy creating Thanksgiving printables, including a set of Thanksgiving-themed do-a-dot printables that are currently available exclusively through Crystal & Co.
Do-a-dot worksheets provide young children with opportunities to practice an early math skill called one-to-one correspondence. One-to-one correspondence is the ability to match one object to one (corresponding) number or object. Although my kids have largely mastered one-to-one correspondence by now, they still get excited when I produce new do-a-dot worksheets for them.
The complete collection of Thanksgiving do-a-dot printables includes the following 10 images:
- male Indian
- female Indian
- male Pilgrim
- female Pilgrim
- pumpkin pie

Kids can complete do-a-dot worksheets using a variety of different materials.
For example, you may want to have your children use small stickers. This will give their fine motor skills a great workout!
Children can also use Do-a-Dot markers to complete the worksheets. Do-a-dot markers are always popular in our home!
We recently acquired some fall-themed stamps. These are also an excellent choice for kids to use with the Thanksgiving do-a-dot worksheets.
And of course, you can always provide your children some small objects they can use to fill in each of the circles. For the pumpkin worksheet shown, I included one small foam pumpkin for each of the dots on the worksheet.
If you enjoy these printables, I invite you to check out the other printables I’ve created – including a Thanksgiving Printable Pack – by visiting my printables page.

Smart idea! Thanks for sharing!! =)
Fun, right Aimee?
I hope you guys enjoy them!
These are adorable. I just subscribed to your page. I can’t figure out how to download these dot printables though. I’ll try again tomorrow. Thanks for such a cute idea!
Carrie- thanks for subscribing. Look for the link that says print here.
Hi! These are super cute! I appreciate you sharing them – we recently used the Halloween themed ones you had.
I am being blind I’m sure, but I can’t figure out where the download link is for these?

These are great! Thank you!
Glad you like them. I am off to check out your First Thanksgiving Week 1 post!
Thank you so much! My little one LOVES these!
Yay! Thanks for letting me know!
I’m almost embarrassed to say that I don’t know what you do with these worksheets. Do you connect the dots or color them in with the stickers and markers? So confused. I’ve never seen these before.
Jelli, there are different ways you can utilize these printables.
You can fill in the dots with the traditional do a dot markers, or you could use other manipulates like stickers, erasers, stamps, etc. These activities are great for building fine motor skills, sorting skills, identification skills, etc., which help with reading and math.
Hope that helps.
My son loved doing the Halloween dot marker prints. He even showed a few friends how to do it 🙂 We did them with the dot markers and stickers. I am going hunting for stamps now!!! He got a little upset when I tried to have him use bigger stickers that wouldn’t fit all the way inside the circle so I don’t know how well the pumpkins would work for us but I am going to check it out!!! Just printed and we are starting Thanksgiving crafts next week!
Yay Alison. That makes me so happy that your little guy enjoyed the Halloween version. This Thanksgiving set is just as fun! And I love how Katie shares different manipulative ideas for learning many ways.
Where did you get the colorful trays? I bet they really help during clean up time.
Let me check with Katie, I have no idea where she gets them. I was wondering the same thing!
Kate- she said he bought there here: I got them at Lakeshore Learning: http://www.lakeshorelearning.com/seo/ca|searchResults~~p|BX532~~.jsp
I have been trying for the longest time and can’t get these pages to print. I have downloaded them and saved them, but when I open the print option the pages go white. Can you help? Has anyone else had this problem?
I love this printable. Will be printing this out and having my little one do this. I would love it if you joined my link up party for kids and learning. 🙂
What a fun Thanksgiving activity for kids! Thank you for sharing these cute printables with the Hearth and Soul Hop.
