I have one child that has to be hands on with everything! Preschoolers just love messy hands-on activities and there are many ways that you can do this while incorporating learning at the same time!
Finger painting is such a fun past time. If your child ever went to preschool I am sure you remember the list of messy clothes, a large oversized shirt or apron for finger painting days. If your preschooler is home you can still incorporate finger painting by doing fun activities while learning about fingerprints!
