Okay, so my Halloween drawing isn’t perfect.
You know what? It doesn’t have to be. My preschooler is fine with my sub-par Room on the Broom drawing. It hits the level of good enough for him to be excited to start painting.
And if it weren’t for sharing with families over the web, I wouldn’t be too concerned with perfection either.
I am slightly obsessed with the book Room on the Broom.
Lucky for me, so is my four-year-old. We read the book, watched the movie, and reread the book. – anything that looks like a broom takes on a life of its own.

Offer a place for your preschooler to mix paint colors.
This is a tray I found at Kroger. The other is a cake pan from the Dollar Store. It doesn’t have to be fancy painting equipment. Use something you already own.
I like to add primary colors along with white to brighten the colors.

As my preschooler paints, his little hands are getting stronger.
This is key for pencil grip and forming numbers and letters down the road. I want to offer many opportunities to use his hands through play before asking him to write.
Setting the stage for writing with painting, coloring, grasping, and squeezing in the early years is a true gift!

The final painting is super unique. – and we adore it!
Keep it hung where it is at, or tape the Halloween painting in your child’s bedroom.
This paint by number was so much fun for my preschooler!
