Painting the Windows

GOAL:

  • Use homemade paint to paint the windows in your little one’s room.

MATERIALS:

  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup liquid soap
  • 1 cup water
  • Vegetable coloring
  • 1 large container
  • 4 small containers
  • 1 popsicle stick

LEARNING EXPERIENCE:

Perform this colorful sensory activity to help your little one create a work of art while strengthening their development of body movements and control and allowing them to draw and write.

This is a nice activity that will also allow your little one to stimulate their creativity and spend a nice moment with you, strengthening your affectional bond.

Before you start, prepare the environment where you two will work. 

  • Start at a small table where your little one feels comfortable working. 
  • Place all the ingredients on the table and ask for help to make the paint together.
  • Mix all the ingredients together in the large bowl. Ask your little one to stir them together using a popsicle stick. They may need a little help, but let them try. 
  • Then take the mixture and divide it into the 4 small containers, and put a few drops of dye of different color into each container.
  • Now that you have the paint ready, invite your little one to paint the windows. I recommend that you look for a window that at the height of your little one and preferably outside. If you do it inside, I recommend putting a plastic covering down under the window so as not to dirty the floor.
  • Show your little one how to use the little homemade paint to finger paint on the window. I’m sure your little artist will have a lot of fun!
