I love doing arty-crafty things with my twins. They are in Reception class at school, and came home this weekend with an alphabet challenge. I wanted to find creative ways to make it more interesting for them.
I remembered we used to make 'paint bags' when they were much smaller, to practice holding pencils in a tripod grip, and making marks. So, I thought we would try it again with their alphabet challenge.
They have just turned five, so I wasn't sure if it would capture their attention. I shouldn't have worried - they literally spent hours playing with it!
All you need is a little bit of paint, a sealable plastic bag, and a cotton bud.
We wrote the alphabet letters, made shapes, and wrote words. All great fun. They said the best bit was that it looked like it glowed when you held it up to the light, and that it disappeared really quickly so they could write again!
As you can see, I took some pictures to capture the fun. I hope this has given you an idea of something to do with your little ones. If you would like me to capture your family having fun, please get in touch here to contact me.
