Dot dabbers

 Take a look at my friend Deborah's dot dabbers! She always inspires me!
I have always used bingo dabbers with my tots - but the ink does not wash off well. Getting the colours you really want may also be an issue - so to make your own is a great option!
Here is my version!
We used yogurt drink containers and 2 styles of makeup sponges.
The pink one is like a regular sponge - more porous.

These are the perfect size for small hands.
The sponges were too small - so I added some fine netting and secured it all with elastic bands.

They worked out great! One had a bit too much water
so I have to remember not to add too much next time!

This little boy was thrilled to see he came up with a happy face!

Nice effect!


  1. This is great!! So many wonderful ideas out, need to try and make some. Thanks for sharing

  2. Great! Love how you made them from scratch! SO cool!

  3. These are wonderful! I love it! What I find is that the homemade dabbers are much more fun to play with too!

  4. Great idea! I love these containers and have used them for vases and snowmen, but this is pretty cool!!! :))

  5. These are awesome! I just need to find a supply of containers. Thanks!

  6. I give credit to Deborah @ Teach Preschool - thankfully I had lots of the yogurt containers because I too have made vases and snowmen with them. I will repost my snowmen come winter time.
