Bear Cubs Nature Play recently shared their brilliant kids activity idea- mark making with Natural Earth Paints! This activity is great for children's fine motor skill development (which later helps with writing and coordination) while being a fun sensory experience.
What you'll need:
- Natural Earth Paints
- Toy(s) of choice (ideally washable!)
Mix up your Natural Earth Paints in containers that are large enough to dip your toys in. You should mix enough paint so that the feet, wheels, or other toy parts will accumulate enough paint to make marks with, but not enough to dip too much of the toy into the paint (too much paint will make this activity quite messy for the little hands!).
Go ahead and mark away! Children can get as creative as they'd like with their mark patterns; be sure to let your little one's imagination lead this activity, and enjoy!
