We have been having lots of fun with Do-a-Dot art sets. Thanks Raegan for mentioning them! A recent one we did was handprint turkeys. I like this because it captures the size of your child's hand.
As soon as you are okay with your child using a do-a-dot. Two and up is definitely appropriate. You will have to decide on children younger than that.
- Fine Motor
- Trace your child's hand on the paper
- Trace a parent's hand on the paper
- Have your child use the do-a-dots to fill in the feathers on each turkey.
This was the first time we used do-a-dots, so the kids were quite excited about them and wanting to experiement. I also realized at one point that I didn't explain the activity well before we started. So, the end-product didn't turn out as I envisioned, but they definitely enjoyed themselves. The top one is Brayden's (age 4.5), and the bottome one is Kaitlyn's (2.5).
