I decided to take advantage of that and do a fun art activity with J using transportation cookie cutters and sponges. I was a bit apprehensive about this activity because J has not liked getting his hands dirty lately. But, I thought I’d just try it and see how it went.
I put the paint on paper plates and laid out the cutters and sponges. J immediately picked up the sponges and dipped them into the paint.
The sponges didn’t leave the impressions that I hoped they would. They just left colored blobs behind, but the cutters left great outlines of the shapes!
I think that the cars really helped keep J’s attention with this activity. He loved driving them around saying “choo-choo” and “beep-beep”
This activity kept J’s attention for a while…
and he only complained a little about the paint on his hands!
I share even more fun stuff over there!
