Here are some fun, creative ways to use piggy paint as a learning tool for your child:
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 and add red foods to mealtime. Once she’s mastered that colour, paint her piggies a new colour.
Recognizing different patterns is a hard concept to learn, so why not put patterns right at their fingertips? For example, if you’re working on simple patterns, alternate blue and pink “Piggy Paint” on her fingers. As you go through the day, help her to make patterns with her toys, crayons, beads…use your creativity. Have her refer to her fingernails for help. Ready for harder patterns? Move to three different colours or alternate pink, purple, purple, pink, and so on.
Piggy Paint Ingredients
Water, acrylates copolymers, melia azadirachta (neem oil). May contain: mica, red 34 lake, ultramarines, titanium dioxide, iron oxide pigments.
Directions for application:
* Wash hands with soap and water.
* Apply 2-3 thin coats of Piggy Paint.
* Air dry 60 seconds.
* Blow dry polished nails for 1 minute with hair dryer set on warm heat/low blower setting. For safety purposes, please follow manufacturer’s instructions on blow dryer and always monitor your child.
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.
Do I have to use a blow dryer to dry her nails?
No, but it is recommended for maximum chip resistance. Since Piggy Paint is water-based and does not contain harsh chemicals, it takes longer for its ultimate hardness to be reached. The blow dryer just speeds up this process.
Another alternative is to wait and polish your child’s nails after bath time, before they go to bed. This will allow the polish to cure overnight.
