This idea has been floating around in my head since my last blog post in June and I am so pleased we got a chance to give it a go today. Neevah still loves the book Ten Apples Up on Top (thankfully she has moved on to a different book for her bedtime story) and she thought this quick Art and Counting activity was a lot of fun.
You will need
Baby Wipes (great for cleaning up paint covered fingers)
1. Ask your child to draw a picture of themselves at the bottom of the paper
2. Put the red paint into a shallow dish
3. Let you child dip their thumb into the red paint and then place a thumbprint apple on top of their head
4. Count out loud as you add more and more apples up on top
How many apples can you get up on top?
