My kids love to crack the eggs when we are cooking. So, it gave me this idea. I poured a small amount of (watered down) paint into plastic eggs.. I didn't match the color of paint to the egg just to add to the element of surprise, but you could certainly do so. I put paper in a box lid just to contain the paint. Then I handed them over to the kiddos! This was a blast and I couldn't fill up the eggs with paint fast enough. A fun way to strengthen those muscles needed for writing along with some great creativity.
Deborah over at Teach Preschool had this same exact idea. Her kids extended this a bit with some rolling and dabbing. Such a great process. Hop on over and check out their work too!Pin It
