Alphabetical Painting Project

Fill clean, empty squeeze bottles (like those for ketchup) with a thick-textured tempera paint. Trace large capital letters on paper taped down to a table (cover with newspaper to protect your furniture). Ask your child to trace the letters with squeezed-out paint. He’ll work on fine motor skills and to recognize and begin to write letters.
