Method
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.

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.
