It’s as simple as handing your kiddos a small container of water and a paintbrush and turning them loose on the sidewalk…or on the patio…or on one side of a wooden fence…the options are endless.
I speak from experience when I say this activity can keep a kiddo busy for all kinds of time – drawing, writing, whatever comes to mind for them!
We painted rocks that we had recently found on a nature hunt, and we drew and painted all kinds of different pictures. Isaac drew David & Goliath and Caleb drew the house from Up.
I love that activities like this gift us with the opportunity to practice different things we’re learning while also being something I can allow my kids to explore independently.
Kids can practice writing:
– The letters of the alphabet – Numbers – Their name – Your family’s address and phone number(s) – Sight words
