We love painting in unique and fun ways. This simple activity is no exception. It is perfect for developing hand eye coordination and those all important fine motor skills. Your utensil drawer is the perfect place to find all the items you need for this simple Fine Motor Painting Activity.
Fine Motor Skills
Helping kids develop their hand muscles is so important, this simple exercise is a fun way to do just that. You will need a few simple supplies including…
- A Chip Bag Clip
- Skewer with a blunt end
- Paint ~ we used left over pots from a DIY art kit
We love painting with unique materials. Some of my kids favorite no brush painting techniques include Pour Painting, Credit Card Painting, Exploding Art, and Compass Painting. If your kids like painting as much as mine, you may want to check out our Painting Archives.
Dots, dots and more dots. Perfect for making adorable wrapping paper or cute kid made cards.
We have used Q-tips to create a simple Pointillism art piece, however skewers are a great alternative.
I love how all the wooden skewers look dipped in brightly colored paint.
