Painting With Tools
Painting with small children's tools is a great way to help your child visualize different colors and shapes while using different toy tools such as hammers, screw drivers and wrenches. While your child is painting make sure to explain to them what colors they are using and discuss what shapes they are creating on the paper.
Finger art is not just a cliche art project for all kids, but it is a great way for children with sensory issues to work with different colors and shapes, all while being able to touch and feel the paint as they create a beautiful work of art to hang on the walls of their home. Although it is great to discuss the colors and shapes with your child, be sure to give them space to express their creative side.
