I would buy Butcher Paper at the grocery store, roll it out and give my boy's water color paints, crayons and stamps to get creative on rainy days. Still have those masterpieces. Loads of fun. But this is a good idea too LEAF RUBBING /amy/ nelson-s
Q-Tip Letter Painting (Preschool, Kindergarten Activity)--great for teaching pencil grip, fine motor skill practice & letter formation. Makes writing letters more than just practice--make it an art project!
For special friends-- Create each child's name on computer, put inside a sheet protector.when making their name-----make first letter green.green means go. Last letter red. Red means stop. Provide lots of capital and lowercase letters to manipulate.
