Kids In Doodles: Dropper Art

I’ve been swamped with household chores that I have been unable to prepare decent activities for our PLAYhouse PreSCHOOL morning sessions.  Since our helper left, the toddlers have had to make do with workbooks and their toys. 

I have resolved though to find a way to adjust our schedule so we could still do fun learning activities together.  One of the activities I miss the most is our Art Day.  Here’s one of the messiest art activities we had last year, Dropper Art:



We just used old medicine droppers, food color mixed with water, oslo paper, and TONS of newspaper to soak up spills.  It was pretty messy but the kids had oodles of fun.  Moreover, pinching the medicine dropper was a perfect exercise to hone their fine-motor skills. 

If you want to try this activity with your toddlers, make sure you have plenty of newspaper around. 😀


  1. wow that’s a cool idea!! wanna try that too! kaso wala n pla kme dropper 😀 heheheeh

    sali k dn sa FAM time ko ha –


  2. If I were you sis Ipagfframe ko siguro mga ganyan good for display, nice work

  3. That’s a wonderful idea. And I couldn’t agree more about pinching being able to improve fine motor skills. I love fun and educational activities for kids.

  4. another fun filled activity. this is why i love reading your posts. I learn so many fun things to do with the kids. just hope i’ll have more time for this learning activities. i’m swamped with household and online work. gotta.find.time. 🙂

    I’ve never tried that for my son, try ko nga minsan, kaya lang parang his too big for that na, grade 1 na sya eh. pero interesado ring sya sa art.

    I would like to take this chance to invite you to my weekly meme also called Daddy and me. You can post pictures of my playmates together with their Daddy or the “man” of their lives. Thank you.
