Triple Rainbow Fun!

Lately I’ve been looking out more for open ended activities for Alfie and Ted – particularly art based ones. Something that is easy for Ted, and yet holds Alfie’s interest too – perfect for the 3 – 7 year old set! 😉

This is one that was very successful! I just taped three crayons together…a few times….

Then the boys got scribbling! This was such a great gross motor exercise, particularly for Ted, with big arm movements – and clasping a group of crayons in each hand – something I didn’t expect them to do!
