Celebrating Dot Day 2013!

In celebration of International Dot Day (September 15th-ish) I am making a special blog post today! Dot Day is celebrated around the world. The goal of Dot Day is to help kids (and grown-ups) express themselves and be creative. The day is based on Peter H. Reynolds great picture book “The Dot.”

Because Dot Day is to celebrate creativity, meet my muse! 😀

  3. I love your dot Erik! Very cool idea — it involves creativity, imaginationand innovation all in one dot-filled bucket. Thanks for linking to my page. My post today includes The Dot in space. Amazing that 1.25 million kids signed up — and in coming months as word spreads, it will continue to grow.

  8. This is a perfect dot, Erik! My boys are in love with LEGO too. My older son is 17 and towers over the kids at the LEGO store but he doesn’t care. 😉 He created a Bionicle forum and a LEGO review blog a number of years ago. I think you guys would get along great!

  9. The dot on the ‘i’ I wonder why such a little character sits on top of such an important this as “I”? It ends things. It makes a segue into other things; it is held within a question.Can we do without it? Dots…of suggestion and inference. P.s. your dot is filled with many things too Erik!

  11. Erik, of course your creative dot consists of Lego! 🙂
    I LIKE polka dots and didn’t know there was a Dot Day … Or I forgot all abut it.

    Maybe that is what I need to inspire me, a dot collage made of my favourite things. Thanks for this interesting and Lego-creative post. 🙂
