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.**
