Both kiddos enjoy painting now. Although it was not always that way with CJ. He used to have meltdowns if he got paint on himself or came in contact with the paint. Through sensory integration (and a lot of patience!) he now enjoys painting and even likes getting messy with the paint!
You will need: rocks, paint, paintbrushes, cups of water, and a tablecloth.
1. Go on a nature walk and have your child(ren) choose rocks.
2. Set-up a table (or flat surface) with a tablecloth and other necessary supplies.
3. Have your child(ren) go to town painting the rocks.
4. Allow the rocks to dry before using them as paperweights and pet rocks (you know you used to have pet rocks when you were younger!).
