Fine Motor Activity of the Week: Fork Painting
[Source: Brick by Brick]
As I said before, we love to paint. We do it almost every week. Lately we’ve been painting with things other than brushes; we’ve been using kitchen items to paint. Last week we painted with a salad spinner. This week we used forks.
All you need for fork painting: Shallow pans, paper towels, paint, forks, and paper. (We always use smocks, too.)
Fold and wet paper towel and place in the shallow pan. Pour paint on top of the paper towel. This creates a “stamp pad” with the paint. Kids can press the fork on the paint and get good coverage. This also keeps the paint in one place. You can get more art with less paint.
