Hand printed Crab

6 Jan

For the Letter of the week – C, I wanted to try this hand printed Crab but didn’t know how well my daughter would take it as she didn’t like getting her hands dirty that time. To my surprise, she really enjoyed the mess!

Things required for 'Hand printed Crab' craft are: Any color paper (or if your kid is older you can get him/her to draw sky and beach on a white paper too) red paint, goggly eyes and a marker pen. (reason for the last 2 not making to the picture is to avoid my daughter from getting distracted!)

Paint your toddler/preschooler's hands red and get him/her to make impressions on the paper with the hands slightly overlapping each other.

Let him/her add the googly eyes and you may draw a smile with the marker pen.

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 your 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 performed by an adult.
