I think he's looking for Loc Dots or similar, I haven't seen such a 
thing at Target.  Loc Dots are ridiculously overpriced IMO, but if 
you want a prepared product that is that easily visible, those are 
what you're looking for.

Presently my favorite cheap locator dot material is adhesive-backed 
foam rubber.  It's opaque, but an 8.5x11 sheet of the stuff is pretty 
cheap and you can punch goodly sized dots out of it using a hole 

I've seen them sold pre-punched for a reasonable price, but half the 
cost of a small sheet, I can have about four times as much if I punch 
them out myself.
