One of the immense pleasures of grandchildren, especially grandchildren I have a hand in homeschooling, is the ability to try products that were not available when my children were little. Do-A-Dot Art! Markers is one of those products. Designed by a preschool teacher who was eager to expose children to a mess-free way to layer and blend colors using a unique paint applicator, Do-A-Dot Art! Markers is the original dot art marker. Super fun to use and amazingly mess-free, easy-grip Do-A-Dot Art! Markers allow your child to be creative even when his fine motor skills are still developing. Thick Do-A-Dot Art! Markers do not require precise, small hand movements to be successful. However, their large, chunky size helps to improve control, dexterity, muscle strength, and the thumb-and-finger hold, which is critical for young children to use a pencil or fork.
At first, your child will enjoy painting anywhere in a picture. Later, when your child is ready, hone his eye-hand coordination and visual perceptual skills by asking him to place the dot marker onto a designated circle. There are many themed dot marker printables available online for your convenience. Washable Do-A-Dot Art! Markers, with their rich, vibrant colors, are a clean, easy way to dabble in the world of artistic expression - just take off the cap and create!
About the Activity Books
Two appealing activity books are included with the Do-A-Dot Art! Shimmer Bundle. Your child will create giant letters and numbers by dotting inside the perfectly-sized outlines with Fun with Letters, Numbers, and Shapes. The small image on each page, such as a watermelon for W, reinforces concepts in a child-friendly way. Discovering My World will encourage your child to paint fish, rainbows, cats, dogs, teddy bears, and much more. Some pictures will have your child coloring in the picture freestyle, and other pages will encourage fine motor skills by asking your child to place the dot marker onto designated circles. The pictures are designed to fit the wide tips of the Do-A-Dot Art! Markers and are printed on heavy cardstock to prevent marker bleed-through. Plus, each page is perforated for easy removal and display - perfect for enthusiastic young artists! Fun with Letters, Numbers, and Shapes as well as Discovering My World will provide hours of creative fun for your child.
About Do-A-Dot Art! Shimmer Bundle
The Do-A-Dot Art! Shimmer Bundle consists of 10 dazzling markers in colors ranging from regal to brilliant. At first, your children may think the wet paint of the Shimmer Markers looks just like any other Do A Dot Art! paint. However, when the light hits their dried masterpiece, be prepared to be blown away by the shimmering results! Excellent for portraying glistening sunshine, royal carriages, or iridescent fish, the Shimmer Markers will provide hours of interest for your young artists. The ten marker colors include Golden Yellow, Hot Pink, Purple, Blue, Silver, Lemon Yellow, Coral, Magenta, Lavender, and Aqua. The Do-A-Dot Art! Shimmer Bundle also includes the engaging painting activity books, Discovering My World and Fun with Letters, Numbers, and Shapes.
We really love these markers! The little guy really enjoys using these in the books or on regular paper.
Absolutely love this product. I have to monitor my 3yr old or he’d finish the whole book of paintings in one sitting. It’s no mess painting and great for even younger kids who are still working on fine motor skills
For us this was more frustration than fun, when she would mess up and get mad there was no way to fix it and it is hard to tell her that it is just art so it doesn't have to be perfect because there are clear directions on how it should work. I think it just wasn't the right fit for two OCD girls.
These are really fun! I bought for my 2 year old and, once again, the 5 year old enjoys it too. My only "complaint" would be that primary colors aren't included in this kit. I ended up buying an extra package (and a book for my older child to paint as well).
This has been an excellent element in our home. Art made easy and so much more fun!
I like to wrap gifts in brown paper and recently had my boys decorate the babies birthday packages.
I'll be replacing these when they used up!
