The Benefits of Dot Stamp Markers for Kids

My kids and I love dot stamp markers for art and crafts! They are beneficial for kids, fun to use, easy to clean up, and I've included plenty of ways to use them with your children.

The Benefits of Dot Stamp Markers

- Children practice hand eye coordination as they direct the stamp to go where they aim on the paper.

- Hand dexterity improves as they hold and flip the dot markers and practice their fine motor skills.

- They experiment with mark making and artistic expression through color choice.

- The markers last through countless art projects. We haven't had one dry out on us yet!

- You can work on left to right progression which is an important early reading skill!

- Identify and name colors in a fun way together!

- You won't need any other materials! No cups, no brushes, and no cleaning required after painting!

  3. Can dot markers be wiped off when used on things that are laminated?
