Painting is one of my kids' favorite past times! Drawing comes in at a close second. Even L (age 2) has been drawing a lot lately-little squiggles that he imagines to be the big bad wolf or a picture of his Daddy. This week I combined two of his favorites. After painting with his brush and hands, I taught L how to draw with the back of his paintbrush.
This activity is great for fine motor development, as well as creative thinking. You can also use a coffee stirrer or Popsicle stick.
