Preschool activity | Animal tracks are not alike

in Animal Tracks, Creative Art, No Two Alike

For one of our last activities we did in our “not-alike” unit, we had fun painting with animal tracks…

I selected several toy animals that had different shapes of feet and that were different colors.  I decided to add the color element to this process just to keep it more interesting for the children and to help them easily notice the different tracks in their paintings…

I put a folded paper towel into a Styrofoam tray and added paint on top of the paper towel.  The children simply pressed the animal feet onto the painted paper towel then made tracks across their paper…

I have to say the tracks didn’t really turn out all that great but the children really didn’t care – they just enjoyed painting with the animals!

Love the animal track idea! I’ve seen an idea where children draw Animal tracks in the snow.
