painting tracks


After reading through this post (same blog where I found the instructions to dye the pasta used in wagon wheel gear trains and pi day necklaces) I thought about expanding the idea a little further with my older kids to use miniature animals, pasta, and hardware to make more tracks.


What you need:
  • paint
  • paper
  • objects to make tracks
  • small container of water to rinse objects in between making tracks (optional)
  • towel to dry off the objects after rinsing (optional)
Paint in trays, animals, paints, paper
The octopus made great tracks!

They came out really pretty!
Have your child try to identify the source of the tracks after the paint has dried. Some of them are easier than others!
