One of the many tasks involved in learning to write is for kids to develop the fine motor control needed to hold a pencil properly and use it to form accurate letters.
In the next installment of my 101 Ways to Teach the Alphabet Series I am sharing a printable q-tip painted letters activity that helps kids with letter recognition as well as the development of their fine motor skills.
I printed out several letters from my Q-Tip Painted Letters printable pack for X-Girl to work on. I put the letters on a tray with a small bit of paint and a q-tip.
I showed XGirl how to hold the Q-tip and dip it into the paint.
Then I showed her how to use her q-tip to fill in all of the little circles with paint.
She enjoyed the fine motor aspect of this activity quite a bit, and was proud to present me with her “paintings” when she was done.
