Ever since discovering these rather awesome dot markers that the kids seem to love and frankly I do too as they make less mess than a paint brush in the hands of my 4 year old I have been gathering resources to use them on!
Today I share a few of those ideas and resources so you too can enjoy this fabulous invention that is a dot marker!
