We Play - Safari Animal Tracks


Don't forget to stop by Childhood 101 We Play where you can find lots of other great play ideas....

We     Play


Is there a better way to paint during Safari week than making animal tracks? Neevah would think not she had so much fun getting right into the animals actions and noises as the left their painty tracks across the paper. We started by brainstorming animals that you might find on a Safari our list was pretty long but Neevah settled on Elephant, Rhino, Zebra, Crocodile, Hippo and Lion to paint with .... now the fun part bring out the paints and make tracks ... bonus points for creativity like Neevahs Rock n Rolling Rhino

Stomp Stomp Stomp goes the Elephant

Gallop Gallop Gallop goes the Zebra

Slurp Slurp goes the Rhino at the Watering Hole

Lots of Painty Fun!

What a great alternative to the traditional painting techniques - very creative!!! We'll have to give it a go at our house!

We had all our safari animals out yesterday for a game of zoo, but this looks like a wonderful new way to play with them :)
