At OMO, we believe that every stain represents an important experience - mud stains are the stamp of adventure, grass stains are the sign of exploration and fruit stains are the aftermath of discovery. Encourage your kids to get messy with our fun activities for happy, healthy, confident kids. We'll be there to sort out the dirty clothes afterwards.
How many seasons
By displaying the seasons of the year, this activity will help your child with pre-writing skills.
What you'll need:
What to do:
Think of a few seasons you would like to go over with your child. Draw the seasons with a white crayon or wax from a white candle as symbols onto a piece of white paper (e.g. snowflake for winter or sun for summer). Mix some water and sand with your child to make runny mud, or you could use paint. Ask your little one to pour the mud or paint on the paper to magically reveal the hidden symbols.
Encourage your child to count and identify the number of symbols and chat about which season they come from. You could also show your child how to trace the symbols themselves.
