We did this about 2 months (he was 29 months) ago and I totally forgot to post about it. It’s inspired by the elastic guitar (elastic around a cardboard box), I took a little box of Yop (drink yogurt) and put some elastic around so he could make music, he liked it. All the elastics made different sounds, he was surprised about that and pinched the elastics for a bit.
Then I asked him if he wanted to paint with it, he looked at me confused. So I set him up and explained as I went.
He doesn’t like putting anything over his clothes so that was a bit of a battle. He finally agreed but took it off a minute later. I told him his shirt would be full of paint as it splatters a lot. He asked to take it off, ok that’ll work!
After, he took the brush and literally took a stab at it! He seemed to like aiming through the elastics, bonus motor skills work, pinching and aiming!
Here are the results!
So we’ll do it again but outside in the summer
