Set Up:

I traced and cut out a letter "A" for all the kids before we started. Each toddler was given a Q-tip and a small splat of washable black finger paint.  Then I show the kids how to make dots with the Q-tips on their letter "A".

They loved dipping and painting and using a Q-tip made paint management surprisingly easy even with 3 toddlers.  If you don't want to use a Q-tip you could also just use fingers and you would probably end up with bigger, more visible "Ants".

We finished up by talking a little bit about bugs and we had a small picnic by spreading a blanket over the floor and eating apples slices together.
