Sample Activities and Instructions

First we would read a book about South America to spark the child’s interest. Then the child will put on an art smock and get ready to paint!
The child will open the paint container and take one q-tip so that they can get started.
Using the q-tip the child will dip the q-tip into the paint and place dots on the line.
The child will happily create the shape of South America.
After doing this with each continent the child can create their own world map!
