Connect the Dots Printables that Teach Numbers
Do your kids enjoy connect the dots activities too? My kids are pretty much obsessed with them right now. So when I saw this neat dot to dot clip art, I just knew I had to make some cool activities with it.
My daughter has been learning numbers, so I couldn’t wait to make these dry-erase connect the dots number cards for her.
They come in both color and black and white. There is also a recording sheet, if you like to have something for the kids to turn in.

- Printable Dot to Dot Number Cards (button to get the printable is at the bottom of the post)
- Wet-erase or dry-erase markers (optional)
- Laminator and laminating sheets (optional)
- Or stick the whole sheet into write and wipe pockets
This time I chose to laminate each card and use them with markers, but you could definitely just slip the whole sheets into write and wipe pockets and use dry-erase markers on them.
You could also print the cards in black and white and the kids can’t just write on them with pencil or crayon. It’s totally up to you.
I will say that my kids really enjoyed using markers on them and being able to wipe it off and do it again. It made this connect the dot printable even more engaging for them.
I use 5 mil lamination sheets so dry-erase marker comes off of it. I do end up having to use hand sanitizer on them to remove staining, but it works fairly well.
Wet-erase markers work very well, but the kids will need wet wipes or a wet paper towel to remove the marker.
Using the Connect the Dots Number Cards
I showed my kids the connect the dots number cards and they were super excited to get started. Especially, when I showed them that they could use dry-erase markers on them.
It was a great way for my daughter to practice identifying numbers and learn their order. She was so impressed each time she was done and could see that she made a number. Of course, she also loved erasing them after she was done too.
My son just wanted to join in on the activity because connect the dots are his thing right now. 🙂 Despite it being a bit too easy for him, he had a great time.
I hope your kids have a fun and engaging time while using this connect the dots printables!
