This is a great idea for many reasons. Roll out a long piece of paper. Have your child lay on their stomach to paint. This provides great weight bearing through the upper extremities for strengthening. In this pictures, some of the children are using paint brushes, and some are using tooth brushes. Try using old toothbrushes for a different way to paint. The kids will find it fun. This is a great social activity, as well, if doing it in a group. The kids will need to share and are able to talk to each other while they paint. Older kids can collaborate on the picture they would like to draw, then divvy up the work.
