One of of my main focuses this year is practicing pre-writing skills. Therefore, I have been on the hunt for fun activities to develop these skills. One super simple way to practice is with a paint bag!
I first gave Xander a paint bag when he was four months old (in this post)
The bag is made by cutting two pieces of Glad Press n Seal to about the same size. Then squirt a good amount of paint into the middle of one piece (I used maybe 1/4-1/3 of a cup of Crayola washable finger paint). Put the other piece of Press n Seal on top (sticky sides in), seal around the edges and trim the extras. Then tape around the edges to hold it all together. I used orange duct tape, just because I had it and thought it would be more fun than regular masking tape.
It is a lot of fun to squish the paint around, but I am hoping to practice writing letters and making intentional lines with it!
Xander had a good time shaking up the paint for me!
