Do-A-Dot Art With Toothettes

The other day I was doing a medical collage activity when I found a new use for toothettes: They make a great stand in for the Do-A-Dot paint bottles! Yep, not only do they make pretty flower prints on a page, they can also make other fun print designs. Here’s my example.

Medical Collage 2 - Frozen Theme

You’ll probably notice that I started the page with medical collage making in thought, plus a little Disney’s Frozen on the mind. What can I say, I was discussing the song “Summer” with a few others at the table. Next we started talking about the pile of toothettes on the table and the rest is history. All those awesome Do-A-Dot templates on the web can now be turned into medical play with the addition of some toothettes and paint! Try it for yourselves and see what you think!
