Playing With Color: Cotton Swab Painting

Use a cotton swab and paint to create a pretty bird craft while working on the fine motor skills needed for a functional and dynamic pencil grasp. 




This was a fun painting craft we did recently.  We've been doing a lot of blue activities lately:

Big Sister and Little Guy went dot crazy on these bird pictures. 

...using that tripod grasp to paint away with the cotton swab.


We finished up our blue play with a little Fruit Loop lacing on pipe cleaners. 
 In blue of course :)

...more tripod grasp play!

 **As always, keep your child's safety in mind.  Keep a close eye on your child while painting with cotton swabs.  If you are concerned they may put the cotton swab into their ear/nose/anywhere else, please don't try this painting activity at this time.  We don't want any accidents.**
