Q-tip painting is an inexpensive way to keep kids creating art all winter. The clean up is quick and easy, no need to wash paint brushes! All you need are a couple of Q-tips, some paint, and a dot printable (we have tons of those for free!). We started by making some grey paint...
Dot painting is great for fine motor skills, and you can also incorporate letter or number lessons...E is for Elephant.

Coloring Pages are a fun way to teach about the life cycle of a butterfly.
A butterfly lays its egg on the underside of a leaf. We used buttons in shades of green and yellow for our leaf. We added a sparkly little pom pom for our egg.
When the egg hatches a caterpillar emerges. A caterpillar eats and eats! Try adding some real leaves to your coloring page. As soon as a caterpillar is done growing they form themselves into a pupa or chrysalis. A hole punch created perfect circles for our caterpillars.
When the caterpillar is done changing and forming a butterfly emerges from the pupa. It's tme to decorate your butterfly! We purchased these 8 x10 foam glitter sticker sheets from Michael's. Cutting small triangles develops fine motor skills. Arranging the triangles fosters puzzle and logic development.
We have free placemats for all of the letters. Print one to take out to dinner, or keep your kids entertained while you cook.
Personalize a birthday coloring page for someone special! Use crayons, markers, pom poms, buttons or other objects you have around the house to decorate your page. Birthday coloring pages are great for decorating a plain bag, or as a substitute for a card.

Paint – It might seem simple but sometimes simple is best. Using finger paints, or paints and paint brushes, you can create a wonderful and bright colored rainbow with your child. The best part about paint is that you can get different paints to paint on different materials. You can paint rainbows on coloring pages, but you can also get puff paints and make rainbow shirts. You can even paint your rainbows on plates or mugs to share with everyone in your family.
