Watercolor Dot Pictures

Picasso once said that every child is an artist. Well, we couldn’'t agree more. That'’s why we designed this fun painting project especially for toddlers. So, grab a few things you probably already have lying around the house and take a page from one of our favorite picture books, The Dot by Peter H. Reynolds.

After you've hung your child's masterpiece on your refrigerator, post a pic with the hashtag: #ACMooreInspired

    Sky's the limit on this one! Here are some ideas to get you started:

    •Paint lots of dots using cotton swabs, a cap from a milk jug, a plastic cup and a pencil eraser.
    •You can also wet the paper and use the foam pouncers to make dots and watch them spread.
    •Or make a resist by making dots with crayons and rubber cement. Let the rubber cement dry and then paint over it with watercolors.
