International Dot Day is a global event on September 15 that encourages everyone, especially children and educators, to embrace their creativity and explore their potential. This special day was inspired by the children’s book “The Dot” by Peter H. Reynolds. In the book Vashti, a little girl in the book, first doubts her ability to draw, but her instructor persuades her to create a mark and see where it leads. The book’s main topic is Vashti’s quest for self-discovery and creativity.

Dot day encourages creativity and courage in the classroom. Dot day activities include reading “The Dot” and making crafts which gives the students creative freedom, just like in the book.
