Art time with Ayden : Why Stamping is important for young children

Ayden is 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 Ayden started by stamping random circles and proceeded to paint a spider, lollipop as well as a goldfish from just a circle.

    Yes, I believe most kids love stamping. The cheekier ones will stamp everywhere except on the paper itself. Hahaha.

    Ayden is so adorable! You speak like a professional. Are you a certified early childhood educator?

    I taught in a preschool and also worked part-time in an early childhood learning centre before giving them all up to be a stay at home mom to Ethan and now Ayden too.

    He is so cute and smart plus handsome too! He will become a very good speaker in future. His mama is so far sighted and clever to teach him all the best in stamping.

    Thank you :D I home-school him just like what I have done with the elder brother during his preschool years hence I have to keep him occupied with fun activities that helps to develop his motor skills.
