Making some Paint Sticks can help children with fine motor development and eye and hand coordination. Experimenting and exploring with a new paint tool. Children are expressing their own art work with paint and having fun.

You will need:

  • Paint,
  • Ice cube tray,
  • Ice pop sticks,
  • Paper
  • Divided paint tray.

Freeze the paint a little then take them out the freezer to put in the ice pop sticks.  When they are ready to use we placed them in the sun for little to slightly melt them and remove them from the tray. Making patterns and swirls with the paint sticks.
