More Q-Tip Painting Templates

q-tip painting templates for fine motor control
Print Friendly, PDF & Email

When I first gave a student q-tips to paint with, she did a lot of smearing and squishing of the paint on the paper.  She was working those fine muscles of the hand, but there was a little something missing from the picture.  It was a very nice masterpiece, but lacked the lovely dots that can be made when using a q-tip as your method of paint application.  Using q-tips to apply paint really helps force that tripod grasp that is used when writing with a pencil, so it is a great tool to use when developing these skills.  To give students an idea of what they are working towards, and to facilitate the q-tip painting process, I have created a couple more templates to use during painting.
