How to Use The Printable Q-Tip Alphabet Painting Flashcards
We have included two letters on each printed page of this packet for a total of 13 cards. In the top section, kids can use paint and a Q-Tip to paint their upper and lowercase letters.
The bottom section of each flashcard contains a simple design to color in and a beginning sight word. I tried my hardest to stick to CVC words or diagraphs, but on some letters that was near impossible…like U…I couldn’t for the life of me think of one! (so we went with unicorn, because who doesn’t love unicorns).
To extend the use of these printable Q-Tip Painting Letter flashcards laminate them before use. With a washable paint kids could play these over and over again!
How Does Q-Tip Painting Help Fine Motor?
Painting with Q-Tips is awesome for strengthening those fine motor skills and a ton of fun! The size of the Q-Tips makes this activity perfect for helping kids figure out their pincer grasp and distal finger control.
Q-Tips are also fantastic for helping kids explore pressure — press hard to create a bigger circle or lightly for a smaller one. But the best part? Kids are learning and challenging themselves while having fun!
You can also easily expand this activity by exploring other tools for painting and different styles of paint!
