Happy International Dot Day!

Today is the day!

We are huge fans of anything that encourages creativity and that is what this day, International Dot Day, is all about.

Update: We added a Dot Day Linky below where you can add your blog post link!

We did write a post about International Dot Day, back in August, for our friends who may not have been aware of this fantastic day. Mr. Reynolds was kind enough to visit our blog and let us know he enjoyed our post. We are still thrilled about that! So much so that we are sharing it again with you... :)

As promised, Cool Mom requested the book, The Dot,  from the library for us and we all agree that it is an absolutely fantastic picture book. Peter Reynolds' drawings are perfection. The book's message is simple yet powerful and one that is dear to our heart. We adore the book and highly recommend it to all ages.

The Dot is about embracing your creativity and learning to find it in yourself even when you believe it isn't there. Can it get any better than that? 

   We would like to give a special thank you to Mr. Terry Shay for beginning International Dot Day back on September 15, 2009.  This year, International Dot Day easily reached the goal of well over one million participants. 

   There are incredible projects/activities/ideas on how you may celebrate this day all over the internet. What is your favorite social media outlet ? They all have #dotday projects..


                       ...and so much more!

   Speaking of fun activities, one available activity is to make your DOT come to life in 3-D by using the free colAR app. Seriously. It is a fun project! We spent some time creating our own 3-D dots.

Now, as promised.... our finished Dots:

Finally, the question we have for you...are you participating in International Dot Day?

Let us know in the comments below or add your post to our linky below. Have fun!

As always, thank you for reading and sharing,
