Marble Painting Shamrocks {Toddler Art}

The main advantage of painting with marbles for preschoolers is that it's an activity that helps work on hand eye coordination! Little ones have to use their hands to tilt the shallow pan and strategically maneuver it so the marbles evenly disperse the paint onto the paper. If the little ones don't want to tilt the pan, they can use a spoon to maneuver the marbles.

A very cool and unique work of art to take home and hang on the fridge for St. Patrick's Day!

Learning the Alphabet {Tracing Letters}

Using a DIY salt tray is a fun way for preschoolers to practice their early-writing skills. Just fill a tray with salt and provide an instrument for your child to make marks in the salt with. A salt tray engages the senses, and is an exciting way for kids to learn how to letters, numbers and spell their name.
