Finger Painting Can Be Fun

We are enjoying Slow and Steady, Get Me Ready by June R. Oberlander. The handbook provides weekly activities to correspond to the developmental patterns of each age group from birth to age five.

This week Joshua did the activity "Finger Painting Can Be Fun." I placed washable paint on a large piece of paper and taped it on the table. Joshua enjoyed moving and sliding his fingers and hands across the paper.
(Joshua is 1 year, 39 weeks)

Jenni loves painting so she joined in on the fun :)

This activity develops free exploration, creativity, fine motor control, more awareness of "wet," "dry" and "slippery," independence and confidence.
