Countdown to Valentine’s Day—no. 9

It’s Day 2 of our #montessorivalentine (check it out on Instagram) and Day 9 of Countdown to Valentine’s Day!

For today’s activity, we practiced painting a heart. Normally I give the little guy a blank piece of paper and he paints freely. This time I drew a heart shape on the piece of paper but didn’t tell him what to do with it. He painted within the heart almost instinctually!

Some of the skills we worked on while painting include:

-Using a utensil

-Using palm and fingers to hold a utensil

-Whole-arm movements

-Drawing vertical/horizontal lines

-Experimenting with paint
