Here is a fun, creative way to paint- use plastic balls. You will need a tray, or cardboard box to contain the balls. Put some paint in the box or on the tray. Put a piece of paper in the box or tray. Throw in some balls and have your child roll the balls back and forth over the paper to paint. Great for bilateral hand use, eye-hand coordination, and upper extremity control. Kids love this different way to paint. Another way: use marbles instead of big balls. Great way to make zebras or bumble bees (which is what is being made in these pictures).
