A dot collage will show you a whole new angle on dot-to-dot pictures! Grab a hole punch and some glue and create a dotty work of art with this indoor craft for kids.

What You'll Need:

  • White paper
  • Markers
  • Colored paper
  • Hole punch
  • Glue

Step 1: Draw a picture on a plain sheet of white paper.

Step 2: Punch tiny round dots from sheets of colored paper, using a hole punch. When you punch, hold the colored paper over a different sheet of white paper to catch the dots as they fall.

Step 3: Glue the colorful dots in place on your drawing, leaving as little white as possible without letting the dots overlap. Your finished work will have a bright, unusual look.
