A simple, somewhat messy but fun way to create your very own tractor! Create a picture for a Father's Day gift, or make a card for birthday, invitations or thank you notes!

Time: 10 minutes (plus drying time for paint)
Age: Under 5's
Level: Easy

Materials
Cardstock and/or construction paper
Paint
Paint brush or tray for paint
Wet rag
Black felt pen

Method
Prepare your cardstock. We made our tractors for Father's Day so I simply printed Happy Father's Day on the cards before we put on the footprint.



Cardstock

Paint a foot your desired colour.



Cardstock
The wet rag is handy to have on hand after the footprint goes on the paper!

Make your footprint on the paper. We put the paper on the floor and directed the paint covered foot.
Let the paint dry and add wheels, cab, hitch, bumper or whatever you wish to have on your tractor.



Cardstock
We found round objects to use as tracers for our tires and added the bumps on after.




Tractor tires
Pasting on different coloured wheels gave the tractor a little more interest.

Add your own personal message and give to your favorite tractor lover!

The tractor is not complete without a driver!
