A-mazing-ing Water Drop
This slick trick will help your child develop eye/hand coordination and creativity.
Material: a cup of water, waxed paper, a toothpick, paper, a pen
First, place a pea sized drop of water on a sheet of waxed paper. Next dip a toothpick in water and touch the drop – without touching the waxed paper. Show your child how the toothpick can move the water across the paper.
Once your child has had a little practice moving the drop, draw a simple maze or spiral on a piece of paper and slide it under the waxed paper. Let your child use the toothpick to lead the drop of water through the maze.
For an older child: Draw letters, numbers, or shapes, and let your child practice moving the drop along the lines.
