Playing with color and paints is the fun thing to do to play with kids as they could learn about colors. This Crafts For Toddlers project use spray bottles with paint so it is easy to apply paint on media and it is perfect to build motor skills by allowing kids’ hand muscles to move and interact. This activity includes making your kid’s name with spray so you can also help them to learn letter writing with fun.
By asking kids to participate in this Crafts For Toddlers project, they can explore color theory. See how they learn to mix primary colors, blue, red and yellow together. Take them outdoor so they can enjoy fresh air and you get advantage to not mess up your room. Just grab the hose and all paints are cleaned up. Here is list of what you need, White drawing paper, tempera paint (Red, yellow, and blue), 3 small spray bottles, Masking tape and Pencil. Put about a teaspoon of yellow paint into a spray bottle and then add water for one fourth cup. Seal the spray cap and mix them together by giving shakes to the bottle. Repeat this process with the red and blue paint with the rest of the bottles.
Proceed with the Crafts For Toddlers project. Grab the paper; it will be great to use the large one. Help the kid to write the name or any letter or number you want in big letters but there should be quite wide space surrounding them. Give the masking tape to the kid and let him tear the tape strips and put them over the pencil lines. This will create big block letters on a paper. Go to outside with the kid and take the paper and the spray with you. Find place that you have prepared to get messy like the driveway or grassy area.
You can still do this Crafts For Toddlers activity indoor, but you must prepare a base like large baking pan or wide plastic sheet so your home will not get mess. Give the spray bottle to your kid and let him do the spritz to his paper. Do this with other colors. Show him how the color mix and blend into another. Finish with the spraying, let the paint dry for more than two hours and then you can carefully peel the tape off. Let the kid do this smoothly without tearing the paper. Show him the result and he would love it.
