OT Activity of the Day:
Target Age Range: 1 and up
I've talked about painting with water while outside, but now I'm bringing it inside. This is a great way to introduce the simple sequence of painting and tool use in those very young kiddos. What I like about this is that you don't have to worry about your child eating, or drinking, the paint and if your child is really into the activity you can even use card stock or a piece of cardboard as the canvas (more durable than regular paper). You can also use this with the older kiddos and work on those prewriting and letter strokes.
So really, it's mess free painting, enjoy!
