Toddler Activities We Love: Do a Dot Art

Each morning, I like to have a fun activity lined up for Hudson. With excessive rain as of late, it’s nice to have a variety of activities prepared if it means we will be spending a good portion of the day inside. I wanted to start sharing different activities we love weekly on the blog if it helps other mamas too! I would love to hear yours, as well!

We have had our fair share of marker art on our white sofa (thank goodness for spot remover & washable slip covers!) Hudson loves to paint, and we do so often, but maximum clean up isn’t ideal for every day. When my boyfriend’s sweet family got these Do-A-Dot markers and activity books for Hudson, it was the perfect hybrid of the two, mess-free! We love gifting it to his friends for birthdays & holidays, also!
