Q-tip Painting Letters

Add a small amount of paint to a container or bottle cap.  Your kids can dip a q-tip into the paint, and then paint dots on the letter cards.

Do you see how there is an extra little circle on one of the dots?  I highlighted the starting point of each letter.  This little visual cue will help your kids remember where to begin each letter.

Pinning is also a great fine motor activity, and there is just something satisfying about making holes in things.  Provide a push pin or a corn-on-the-cob holder to your kids and they can poke holes in all of the circles on the card.
