Since most young children are squirmy during the drying process of any polish, we suggest singing songs to pass the time. Two rounds of the “ABC’s” should make 60 seconds pass by very quickly. Make “Piggy Painting” a bonding experience for you and your child.
Piggy Paint Nail Polish is only intended for use on fingernails and toenails.
Fine Motor Skills
Let your child paint your fingernails or toenails. If you’re worried about it looking (well, like a child painted your nails), opt for the toenails…you can always put socks on in public! This helps with her fine-motor skills and gives her a chance to exert her independence.
Are you trying to teach your child colour names? Paint her nails with the specific colour you’re working on (such as red) and declare it a “Red Day”. All day long, point out objects in her environment that match her nails, and encourage her to do the same. Wear red clothes, add red foods to mealtime and use a bath colour tablet to make her bath water red. Once she’s mastered that colour, paint her piggies a new colour.
Recognizing different types of patterns is a hard concept for children to learn, so why not put patterns right at their fingertips? For example, if you’re working on simple patterns, alternate blue and yellow “Piggy Paint” on her fingers. As you go through the day, help her to make patterns with her toys, M&M‘s, crayons, beads…use your creativity. Have her refer to her fingernails for help. Start out with colour patterns and then attempt other categories, such as big doll, little doll, big doll, etc. Ready for harder patterns? Move to three different colours or alternate pink, purple, purple, pink, and so on.
Does your daughter play any sports? Perhaps she has a favourite high school, collegiate, or professional team she cheers for. If so, paint her nails with her team’s colours to show her support.
