Purposeful Painting

purposeful painting

Painting can be beneficial on so many levels for both children and adults.  Not only does it offer fine motor practice, it also provides relaxation, amongst other benefits.  Don’t limit your children (or yourself!) to only using paint brushes and paper; think outside of the box and be creative with your choice of media to use to paint with and on!

You will need: paint, trays, paper, wood blocks, (we used left overs from Taekwondo class) Q-tips, popsicle sticks, paint brushes, and other odds and ends to paint with.

  1.  Squirt some paint onto paper, wood boards, and other media.
  2. Use Q-tips, fingers, paint brushes, and other odds and ends to practice painting and fine motor skills.

3.  Remember, hands, clothes, and other objects can be washed.  Encourage your kiddo to explore and create- even if that means a little clean-up later!
