How to Make for Dot Marker Rainbow: Fine Motor Activity
Grab your supplies.
On a piece of white paper draw the outline of a cloud. Use the dot markers in the colours of the rainbow to make dots all along the page underneath the rainbow.
Invite your little one to use the markers to draw around the dots. Your child will begin at the cloud and draw a line around the dots to get from one end of the paper to the other.
This activity is good for kids 3 years and up. My kids are 3.5, 3.5, and 7 year old.
Exciting Sensory Bins for Curious Kids
Boring afternoons are made exciting with awesome animal-based bins, like Salty Shark Bay or Yarn Farm. Pretend play bins like Birthday Cake Sensory Play or Bubble Tea Party encourage creativity and imagination. And your kids will have so much fun they won’t even know they’re getting smarter with STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art and math) activities like Sink or Float Soup, Magnetic Letter Hunt or Ice Cream Scoop and Count.
