This super-easy alphabet craft offers great fine motor practice for older toddlers and preschoolers! We haven’t practiced “staying in the lines while coloring” a whole lot with Big Brother, mostly because I normally just give him a blank piece of paper and let him free-draw. I’m not a big fan of coloring books…I think my art education teacher in college brain-washed me. :)
Here’s what you’ll need: a white piece of construction paper, a black crayon, and scissors.
1. Draw a “C” on the piece of white paper.
2. Add some cow spots (I’m a terrible artist).
3. Let your child start coloring the insides of the spots.
Big Brother was a little confused about what he was supposed to color and what he wasn’t, so I just drew tiny “x’s” on the inside of each of the spots so he would know where to color.
This cute book by Doreen Cronin is about some barnyard animals who are very irritated with their present living conditions. They’re cold and they want blankets and the farmer refuses…so they find a type-writer and decide to go on strike. Your child will love this adorable book!
