Hey y’all, it’s Erin.

We all have those days where we’re looking for things to do with our kids whether it’s supporting their development or just having fun.

I’m going to talk about one of my family’s favorites– painting!

Before we get into the ways you can paint, I’d like to share why it’s important:

  1. Painting is an excellent fine motor activity. Building your child’s fine motor skills will help them learn to use utensils, with handwriting, and so many other things they will do with their hands. 
  2. It also helps build hand eye coordination. 
  3. As an added bonus, painting is a fantastic way for kiddo to express themselves. 
  4. It builds their imagination while they’re using a creative outlet.
  5. These moments will lead to great opportunities to build on their vocabulary. For example, you can talk about colors, tools, and sensory input your child is receiving.  
  6. At the top of the list, painting is fun! You can bond with your child, all while supporting their development.

Now onto the fun stuff!
