Design a Dot Day shirt with a fun, creative t-shirt template.

Create a Dot Day Shirt Design!

Are you struggling to figure out a fun design for an International Dot Day shirt? We’ve created a template to help the most creative people we know (your students) design the perfect shirt to wear on Dot Day this year!

The Design a Dot Day Shirt Activity is an exciting way to teach students about art, design and creativity. Students will use the template, crayons and a pencil to create a unique dot design that they (or you!) can use as the basis of their very own t-shirt design for International Dot Day! This activity is perfect for students who enjoy drawing, colouring and crafting.

You can even have them cut them out and you can hang them up clothesline style to display their creativity to the whole school!

✂️ Give Them the (Safety) Scissors 

This template makes for a bonus cutting skills activity, depending on your students’ ages and abilities. 

With adult supervision, cutting skills help students work multiple muscle groups and their brains, plus:

  • strengthen finger and hand muscles
  • build dexterity and fine motor skills
  • improve hand-eye coordination
  • develop focus and attention.

And all of these skills are necessary to use a pencil and a fork; button a shirt and tie shoes; write, type and swipe.

Scissor skills are brain and muscle skills!
