I remember being told time and time again that you should never use ear buds to clean yours or a child’s ear, so what do you do then, with all the ear buds that seem to turn up? Well that’s easy – make dot art with them of course!

My charges and I have had a great morning painting with them. First of all we did some letter and number writing with them (which I will do in a separate post) but then we let our creative juices flow and started to create our own abstract pictures.

Make sure you follow my craft board on Pinterest for more ideas.  Don’t forget to save the pin for later. 

To make your own dot art you will need:

  • Ear buds
  • Paints
  • Paper

Look at the concentration on my eldest charge’s face as he creates his rainbow.
