We use Do A Dot Art! Markers for dot painting. You could also use Bingo Markers or Pom-Poms. Use a clothespin and squeeze a pom pom for a DIY pom pom dot maker.

BENEFITS OF DOT PAINTING
These dot painting worksheets offer several benefits to kids and students. Besides being mess free, dot painting also helps kids develop hand-eye coordination as they direct their marker to the spot on their paper. Kids strengthen fine motor skills as they hold the dot markers and move their hands to apply the marker to the paper. Do A Dot Art Markers, are especially great for little ones. They are chunky, making it easier for their little hands to easily grab and manipulate.
