Large sheet paper

Variety of plastic animals
Paper plate or piece of old cereal box.
Lay out a large sheet of paper on a table. For young kids, it helps to tape the edges of the paper down with sticky tape to stop it sliding around.
Tape the paper down for younger kids
Squirt a few different colours of paint on a paper plate or piece of old cardboard box.
Lay out the paint plate and the animals on the paper table.
Let the kids choose animals and dip the toys in paint. Jump the animals across the paper and look at the different tracks left behind.
Keep going with different animals and colours.
Fill a large container with warm water and a squirt of washing up liquid and have fun giving the animals a bath to clean off the paint.
