Once again we’re at our favourite activity, painting. Today it’s painting with Q-Tips (cotton buds)
And I’ve included our favorite activity to hone Angelo’s writing skills.
We got out our washable paint and some q-tips and I’ve pre-written his name for him to trace.(I’ve got this brown paper from Homes R’ Us – it’s actually wrapping paper)
This fun activity provides an opportunity for Angelo to learn how to write his name. I wrote his name on paper with a marker. Remember to write the first letter using a capital letter then the rest in lower case. I let Angelo trace over the name with the Q-tips. By repeating this activity, he will begin to understand the strokes on how to write his own name!
It was fun and easy.
It wasn’t crazy-messy, which was a bonus.
When he’s done he went straight to our easel and he was so excited to write his name.
