Here is a fun hands on project to do at home with your little ones. Our Toddler class enjoyed this super simple experiment that can be done at home. In order to do this activity pick two of your favorite paint colors, add some glue to a dish and use a cotton swab to swirl the colors together. When the child is holding the cotton swab and moving it around you are helping to engage those fine motor skills. Hope you have fun making some swirly color magic.
This activity can be adapted for children of any age
Mathematical concepts of more and less
Fine motor skills when pouring and mixing
Descriptive language to describe colors and patterns
Scientific thinking to predict, observe, and compare
