These free printable Women’s History Month dot marker coloring pages are a fun way to introduce notable women to your toddler, preschooler, or kindergartener. There are a mix of classics, such as Amelia Earhart and Marie Curie, and a couple of less frequently included ladies, like Audrey Hepburn and Mae Jemison.
For her very first Christmas, my little girl got a set of magnets featuring influential women. She couldn’t do much with them then, but we’re still using them on our fridge four years later! She can tell you factoids about many of the featured women now and it’s pretty cool. I hope these dab it marker pages help you teach women in history to your child, too.
Dot marker coloring pages are perfect for rainy days, themed lesson plans, occupational therapy, and everyday fun.
I’ve created many dab it “Do a Dot” marker pages over the years and will continue creating them as long as I come up with new themes. See all the dot marker pages available on this page. Here are a few reader favorites:

What are the benefits of dauber marker printables?
Kids love dot marker pages, but are they developmentally appropriate and beneficial?
Yes! Dot marker pages are easy and no-prep for you, plus they’re fun and developmentally appropriate for children. They’re most popular (and beneficial) with the 1-5 age range, but therapists also use dauber marker pages to help older children who need help with coordination and finger strength. Even one year olds can use these pages. My daughter was about 16 months old when she first used a dot marker on a coloring page I created. I was amazed to watch her carefully dot a page the very first time I introduced the activity to her.
Dauber marker pages are a simple, inexpensive way to help your child develop important skills including:
- hand-eye coordination
- grip strength
- finger strength
- and manual dexterity.
How use dauber/bingo marker pages
The circles on these pages are based on the size of my daughter’s Classic Do a Dot Markers. The circles are sized for this brand of markers, but they also work with other dauber or bingo style markers. All the dauber markers I’ve seen are pretty much the same size and readers have shared photos of their child using the pages with various brands of dot markers.
These are the exact markers we use. We have been using the same set of markers for more than three years now. They can be a little spotty when they’re first used for the day. If your dot markers are spotty, make sure to store them on their sides (not standing up vertically) and pounce them hard a few times to get the ink flowing. I like to use a scrap piece of cardboard from a box.
To make the dot marker pages reusable, have your child cover the circles with pompoms, felt balls, or big buttons. For an extra challenge, have your child place the manipulative with a pair of tongs. Bamboo toast tongs work well. This is a great activity for older children who are already proficient with the dauber markers.
