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.

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.
