Water Drops on Wax Paper
Carter is 3 years, 3 months old.
You will need:
1. Draw small (dime size) circles on a length of wax paper with a Sharpie.
I put another step in here: I let Carter practice sucking the water up into the dropper and squirting it out into the bowl for a while before he tried it on the wax paper.
2. Show your child how to release one drop into each circle on the paper. Then, suck the drops back up and put them into the cup.
3. Invite your child to try.
Conclusion: The was a VERY difficult fine motor activity, though Carter stuck with it for more than 30 minutes. It took him a few tries making the drops before he could get a small enough amount to come out. He was fascinated with sucking the water back up off of the wax paper, laughing hysterically each time he did it. I LOVE the look of concentration on the last photo.
