(This time I just used printer paper with a pre-printed message and green finger paint. Stampers were a 1 and a 2 year old visiting with us. For more details on how to make these, see this post and this one.)
Do-A-Dot Marker Rainbows:
(I modeled one on my own using Do-A-Dot Markers while the kids watched. Then, Luke did his entirely on his own. I helped Lilah with the first red arc and she did the rest. The 4th rainbow was done by a 2yo who was visiting with us — he held the stamper and I guided his hand. We made sure to say the name of each color as the child stamped it because the younger two are still working on color recognition.)
|I modeled the making of this rainbow first.|
|Then Luke (4yo) did his rainbow next, independently.|
|Lilah (2-1/2yo) went third.
I guided her with the first color (somewhat) and then she did the rest on her own.
|The 2yo who was visiting us went last.
He held the markers and I helped to move his hand to do the dots.
We added the shamrock thumbprints afterwards.
