Celebrating Dot Day 2013!

15 Sep


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.”


For a summary and review of “The Dot” please visit Ms. Tilton’s website HERE.  To learn more about International Dot Day, please visit the official website HERE

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


LEGOs – The beginning of creativity for many kids! 🙂

Happy Dot Day!

    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.

      The Dot in space thing is cool! Dot Day is fun. I am glad a lot of people are doing it. It is neat that it happens all over the world (and in space)! 🙂

    Nice, Erik. I had thought about this and then forgot all about it. so glad you remembered. You have a great DOT!

    What a great Dot!!!! Makes me want to create something with Legos. Problem — I have no Legos. (I used to have little building bricks that I loved when I was a kid…)

      NO LEGOs?!? That is a tragedy! 😉 Building blocks are cool too. We have an old set of them. 🙂

    How fun! Maybe I will have my students make dots tomorrow. Fabulous idea to use Legos- your dot looks awesome! 🙂

      Thank you! I hope your students have fun! I convinced my art teacher at school to do it! She had the k-3rd graders doing dots! 🙂

    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!

    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!


    • ontheplumtree September 15, 2013 at 7:56 pm #

      And because I can’t see very well, I must add that “i?” is thus. And it is an important (or unimportant) thing. Not an important, *this*

      That’s great Dr. Clune! Dots ARE important! 🙂

    LOVE your Lego dot!

    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. 🙂

      Hi Ms. Davidson!!! 😀 I’m glad you like my dot! Next year you can do Dot Day! It is always on September 15-ish. 🙂

    That is a very cool Dot Erik! Aren’t they my LEGOs? 😛
