‘Melting’ Drawing/Letters

  

(this activity was melt the monster)

Here’s something that is really simple that the kids get a kick out of and can spice up drawing, handwriting, coloring, etc.  We have them ‘melt’ their letters or drawings after it is completed by using a spray bottle or a pipet with water.  The kids love the idea of doing it and usually ask if they can ‘melt’ their letters which gives us a great motivator to get them to work on their letters.  In addition if they are using a spray bottle or pipet they are working on hand strengthening and fine motor skills so its a double bonus! (I like the melting from the spray bottle a little bit better but the pipet works just as well in a ‘pinch’)

  1. This activity works great outside as well using sidewalk chalk. If they can’t use a spray bottle (since tilted to spray down) try a water gun or fill up a clean dish soap plastic bottle and squirt the water on it. Have to admit using the recycled dish soap bottle is pretty fun.
