Q-Tip Painting Fruit Printables
Painting with q-tips is not only great for strengthening creativity but it works on other skills as well. The motion of picking up the q-tip, dabbing with it and then setting it back down is helpful for strengthening fine motor skills. It is important for children to strengthen the hand muscles. These muscles allow children to zip a zipper, tie their shoes and hold a pencil properly. These fruit themed printables are a super fun way to help kids do this!
