My youngest boy is now 3 years old. It is important to work on his soft motor skills. At this age, I pay more attention to his finger muscles and hand strengthening as it is crucial in helping him to hold the pencil when he starts going to school.

Stamping is one of the best activity to work those finger muscles as he will be utilising all four fingers and his thumb to hold the stamp. It helps in his coordination and when I make it a little more challenging by getting him to draw something out of the circle he stamped, it becomes a bilateral activity that activates the non-dominant hand (to hold the paper) as well as his creativity in painting his thoughts on paper.

Watch this video on how he started by stamping random circles and proceeded to paint a spider, lollipop as well as a goldfish from just a circle.

Hi Merryn, here’s the Octopus Lollipop that I made, inspired by your Spooky Halloween Lollipop. The first few steps are the same as yours. The additional steps are: Cut the tissue paper into 8 strips and twirl them up. Lastly, with a marker pen or highlighter, add some polka dots to the tentacles.
