Sweet Butterfly has started to show an interest in shapes. Triangle is her fav shape. Since the interest is there, I thought I’ll create some impromptu shapes learning activity.
- Drawing board
- Cotton Buds
- Glue Glitters
- Draw the various shapes and write their names
- Use glue glitters to trace the shapes
- Use cotton buds to dot the interior of the shapes
- Fine Motor
The cotton buds and glue glitters were used in 2 separate activities.
She always has this intense look when something new is introduced to her. Her motor skills isn’t there yet. So I got to guide her hand and squeeze the tube for her.
This is the first time we tried painting with cotton buds. I showed her how to do so.
She ignored me and ask, “I paint my hand?’
And she started her abstract painting on the shapes using her hands. What’s new huh?
