I set up the craft basket with the following items
- A card stock
- Tissue paper (to wipe off paint)
- q tips
You can do this activity as an open ended activity in which case, you just give some q tips and ask your child to paint however he wants.
If you want to do it in a structured way, you can decide on a shape and trace an outline of the shape with pencil. We decided to do a heart and I drew a heart outline. The kids then dipped the q tips in paint and used them to paint the heart
