This art activity is one of my favorites. It promotes fine motor development and reinforces color recognition.
Here is what you will need:
Food Coloring or Tempura Paint
Craft Sticks (Optional)
Card Stock or Heavy Construction Paper
We used tempura paint and mixed it with the icing, to make Valentine’s Day colors.(The children may want to help mix the colors, which is great for science development.)
Set out the materials, discuss, and allow children to explore them.
“Pink!!!” (He identified a color…best thing to happen all day!)
