WHY use Q-Tip Painting Printables?

The big answer is fine motor skills! You’ll notice how we focus on not only the tiny dots, but also using small items in painting or adding to the dots. All of this works on hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills

The letter identification is a secondary bonus!

Rainbow Q-Tip Painting Printables

Rainbow Q-Tip painting


 

I love rainbows and I love Q-Tip painting, so of course we needed a new rainbow q-tip painting printable set!  This set has a variety of fun rainbow printables to help focus on color words, beginning sounds of color words, and ROYGBIV! I also offered a version that says “purple” in case you don’t use the indigo-violet version with your kids.

There are a few pages with full rainbows…Rainbow Printables

 

You’ll also find a full page for each color word, showing only that color in the rainbow… Color Words Q-Tip Painting

 

Finally, there’s a half sheet for each color featuring the beginning sound and a place to trace the color word… Rainbow Color Printables

 

We use water colors mostly, but sometimes use Tempera paint too.

I hope many of you enjoy these printables during a fun rainbow theme with your kids or in your classroom!

We used the book Mouse Paint for our special Letter M theme and Ladybug loved it!  Here’s her special Mouse Paint shelf…

Mouse Paint -7987

She went straight for the counting game in the mini pocket chart, which we played several times after this also!

Mouse Paint -8004

 

We read the book MANY times, and enjoyed using special props as we told the story.  I put a tiny cat and mouse in a basket on the shelf and she played with these so much!

Mouse Paint -8000

We used our rainbow blocks to be the “paint”

Mouse Paint -8078

We also pulled down the printable colored mice to use…

Mouse Paint -8081

 

We worked on our Mouse Paint Pocket Chart Printables, but she wasn’t nearly as impressed as I was.

We colored the Mouse Paint Colors book together…

The highlight was making egg carton mice!

Mouse Paint -8012

Our purple mix was a big fat failure, so I cheated and got the purple paint from the cabinet.

Mouse Paint -8068

 

She didn’t want to use Qtips on the color word printables I made for her, so we used glue and glitter!

She loved using stickers on the dot fun sheet

We also used stickers for the graphing activity!

We used these sheets as a final review of color mixing!  I got the first one here,

Mouse Paint Q Tip Painting Color Words

{disclaimer ~ affiliate links used below}

Mouse Paint is a great way to work on color word and although my daughter is a bit young for this, it’s not too early to expose!  I made these to be Q tip painting sheets, but she is an out of the box thinker and asked for glitter.  Together we put tiny glue dots on the bubbles and then glittered them!

I Spy Color Hunt Photo Collage

I Spy Color Hunt

One of the best things we did as my tots were learning colors was have a Color Hunt!  I did this with Krash when he was a tot and wrote about it in our Tot School posts on the blog. 

Over a period of time, we worked through all of the colors, spending time together on certain mornings running around the house gathering everything we could find {of reasonable size} in that color.  We would lay it all out together and make it photo-worthy and I snapped a picture.  After all of the photos were taken, I turned these into an I Spy book for the boys and they loved it!

I Spy Color Hunt-2315

After we finished years ago, I never shared the tutorial for how we did this, yet I still get asked.  So finally, here is the how-to post!  I used Photoshop to create mine, but know that most of you don’t have access to it, and if you do you certainly know how to do this on your own!

Recently I found the online gem PicMonkey, so I am using this for my tutorial since it is free and online!  You all can use it!  I walked through the process, taking screenshots along the way, I hope this helps!  Most of these shots speak for themselves telling you what to do in each step…

Upload the photo you want, using “edit a photo”…Pic Monkey Tutorial 1

Pic Monkey Tutorial 5

 

Pick a font you like and that is easy for kids to read, and add the list of your items to the bottom,  As you place your words, keep in mind that most printing places will crop off a small portion of the edge, so always leave a buffer around the edge so no words get cut off!Pic Monkey Tutorial 8

 

Add in your “I Spy” and the color word, in the fonts you like, placing them where you like best on the image!Pic Monkey Tutorial 9

Be sure to save at a high quality if you plan to print!Pic Monkey Tutorial 11

 

There you go! You now made a page for your I Spy Colors Book!  Pink Collage

 

Keep going until you have all of the colors you want and then you’ll have your very own custom made I Spy Color Book! We printed ours on 4×6 matte paper and had them spiral bound. 

I Spy Color Hunt-2305

You could slip yours into a little 4×6 album to make it easier.  Make a neat cover for your book in PicMonkey too, have fun being creative!

You could do this for numbers, shapes, or letters too!  We just might be doing an alphabet one soon!
