A Little Glue and Paint Magic!

Here is a fun hands on project to do at home with your little ones. Our Toddler class enjoyed this super simple experiment that can be done at home. In order to do this activity pick two of your favorite paint colors, add some glue to a dish and use a cotton swab to swirl the colors together. When the child is holding the cotton swab and moving it around you are helping to engage those fine motor skills. Hope you have fun making some swirly color magic.
