This is a very easy activity which is great for developing fine motor control, hand eye co-ordination and pencil grip. You will probably have most of what you need at home already which is a bonus.
What you need:
- Cotton buds
- Containers for paint
What you do:
Arrange the activity at a table where your child will be comfortable.
Put cotton buds in paint and let your child be creative! Try not to direct the activity too much as your child is likely to lose interest if you do.
You can extend on this activity by singing songs to describe what your child is doing while he/she is painting such as “put a spot over here” “put a stripe over there”… Don’t worry too much if you don’t know the tune… Make it up
