  • Set the construction paper down in the middle of the splat mat then:

6 months+ : use finger paints - place some paint on the bottom of a ship and demonstrate to your little one how you move it around on the paper. Let them do the same.

10 months+ : Place a blob of paint on the paper and show your little one how you dunk the ship in and then move it around. Let them do the same.

14 months + : Let your little one put paint on the bottom of their ship and let them move it all around the page.
