Q-Tip Art Materials
You only need a few materials for this activity!
- Handful of Q-tips
- Washable paint
- Spring Q-tip Printable (at the bottom of this post)
Q-Tip Art Directions:
- Before you begin, print the pages onto card stock paper. Using card stock paper prevents the paint from bleeding through the page.
- Have the child dip a Q-tip into paint and then fill in the circles on the pictures. You don’t need a lot of paint on the Q-tip and may have to dip it in the paint several times to finish the picture.
It doesn’t have to look perfect! The idea is to work on fine motor skills. When a child holds a Q-tip, they have to hold the small Q-tip in place and dab the paint in each circle. This is good for building those smaller muscles of the hand. It’s also great for hand-eye coordination! Working on fine motor skills will help with good handwriting when students learn to hold a pencil and write letters.
There are so many fun pictures to paint!

Frequently Asked Questions
Any washable paint will work! I like Crayola the best!
Yes! Regular paper is too thin and the paint will bleed through. Card stock is the best kind of paper to use because it has more weight to it.
I sure do! You can find them all over on this page.
