A couple of years ago I got some great inspiration to purchase dot markers and every since then, dot marker art and dot marker printables has been my go to when I need some thing quick. I just jump on my computer and print out my go to images for the kids to work with.
Both my preschooler and toddler and they absolutely loved it! It’s not always easy to find print activities for kids that last for hours. I sat my son down at the table to show him how it works in the beginning, and he literally did not want to leave the table! (this is very unusual for him and made mommy jump for joy lol). The great part is that later in the day we were right back at it, quietly doing our projects at the table. My mind was absolutely blown.
Needless to say, I decided to do a quick post on this awesome activity sent from heaven that keeps my child quiet for a few hours 🙂 It is so fun, easy, non-toxic, long lasting, and basically no mess if you prepare. (get an art smock like the one here. You will be glad you did because it works for all types of projects.

Dot Art Marker Art!
Dot Art Supplies
1. Box of Do-A-Dot Markers: I got these simply because the markers are the best and the colors are great. It seems pricey for markers but we have been using them for a few years now.
3. Newspaper, messy mat, or a project board: You can get project boards from a nearby Dollar Tree or use anything that will act as a barrier between your printables and your surface. There really was not a lot leaking for us but better safe than sorry! We have had a little leaking.
