The set-up for this was really simple. I just put out the plastic farm animals, along with paper plates filled with washable paint, and several paint brushes. I didn't give the kids any instructions except to use the animals with their painting if they wanted to.
My 5-year-old decided to paint scenery for the animals.
Many of the kids used the animals to make prints with their paint.
The kids loved this simple activity!
