Twinkle Twinkle Little Stars
with Ice tray and Paints

This was Ria's first activity as a toddler when she turned 18months old. This is an easy craft for 18 months olds and a good way to introduce colors to toddlers.

Get your toddler to paint the back side of the tray where the stars are.

Ria loved to do this then (although now she doesn't like paints on her hands)

Then flip the tray so that the painted side is on the paper and press.

Early Learning goes a long way in your child’s education and upbringing Amongst the very important things to learn for a toddler or preschooler are hand-eye coordination, 5 senses, practice fine and gross motor skills, balance, and muscle development. A lot of this can be practiced at home with crafts and activities under adult’s supervision. Playing with colors, pots and pans, brushes, sponges, glue; reading books, pretend play, all seem like child’s play to us but are actually helping your toddlers/preschoolers develop their minds and bodies.

Please make sure all the activities mentioned in this blog are done under adult supervision. If you children are still putting things in their mouths, then avoid activities with small particles that can cause chocking hazards. Also, all steps in the articles that involves a pencil, knife, pair of scissors or any sharp objects should be done by an adult.
