Crayon Resist

KD knows his letters and numbers but doesn't have the fine motor skill and strength necessary to write them clearly.  He doesn't really care to sit and color for extended periods of time so I've been googling and inquiring about helping him with these skills.  Adding some interest to coloring and painting helps hold their attention so we tried a crayon resist.  We used regular paint but I think it would have worked much better with water colors.

Give your little one paper with crayons of similar colors.  Then let them go at it with paint.  You can also write messages or draw shapes and have them search for it on the the paper using their paint brush.
Isn't that the sweetest hand you've ever seen?!
