Celebrate International Dot Day and Make Your Own Mark on the World!

Did you know that September 15th- ish is International Dot Day?  It’s a day to celebrate creativity, imagination, and working together.  It’s based on the book, The Dot, by Peter Reynold’s which is about a little girl Vashti who doubts her own ability in art and is uninspired.  The teacher encourages and believes in the student even though the student doubts their own ability. The teacher encourages Vashti to just make a mark and sign it and so the story begins about a little girl who becomes inspired, more confident in herself, and helps others find their own creativity.

Feel free to share how you celebrate Dot Day!

Here's a fun song/video for you to watch with your kids:

Watch the author create a dot here and use it as a kick off to have children create their own dots.
