JJ and I had so much fun painting Easter Eggs with cotton tips last week, that we had a go at a few variations.
1. Glitter Glue
Stickers are the bomb for this age group (and are great for fine motor development). For young toddlers, you can lift up a corner. Older toddlers will get the hang of bending the sticker sheet to release a corner of the sticker themselves, then they can sticker just about anything. And it doesn’t matter if the stickers end up all on top of one another to form a sticker tower (a phase JJ went through for a while there).
3. Drawing with Crayons
I *ahem* might have done most of the one on the left again. But JJ did the one on the right. I like how she’s tried to do horizontal lines like my one. It shows that she’s watching, copying and possibly becoming aware that Easter Eggs tend to have this design.
4. Painting with Cotton Tips and Fingers (and knuckles, and the entire hand really…)
These beauties are almost entirely JJ’s creations. I think I may have done the purple squiggly line on the biggest one only. I love the texture that she’s created on the big one using the cotton tips. (I discussed the techniques JJ used for these ones in this post last week).
We’ve been getting up to some more Easter fun which I’ll share with you soon. I’d love to hear what Easter activities you’ve been doing lately?
