Paper Towels... Colors... Water
I set this invitation up for my 3.5 year old and 25 month old.
My oldest is obsessed with all things letters/numbers/tracing lately. She is always asking me to draw dotted letters to trace. I thought it would be fun to put a twist on it and change things up a bit. We did this on the light table but it does not have to be done this way.
I decided to write letters/numbers on paper towels that she could trace with water. She absolutely LOVED this. I remember doing this all the time as a kid. We used to trace the designs on paper towels with marker and then spray them with water and watch the colors bleed. :-) I wanted her to try that too, but all we had on hand was plain white towels.
I set dropper bottles out for my 25 Month old, but she took a long nap today and never made it to the invitation.
Tracing numbers with water.
The paper towel did come up a bit so I suggested we tape it down.... she didn't like that idea and wanted to just hold it with her hand.
Tracing letter D
"Can you make more? This is fun because I know how to trace my letters"
What would you like me to make?... She spelled her name. I think I made a name for every single person she knows. LOL
After a hour of letter tracing she moved on to the dropper bottles.
Some of her finished work. These are laying out to dry. I'm going to set up another invitation with these, a pair of scissors, and modge podge to make a collage on poster board.
