Preschool activity | Animal tracks are not alike

Your children will enjoy process art with animal tracks!

For one of our last activities we did in our “not-alike” unit, we had fun painting with animal tracks… If your children love process art and pretend play with animals, they are sure to love this!

Preparing the Invitation to Create

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…

How the Process Works

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…

Embracing the Process

I have to say the tracks didn’t really turn out all that great but the children really didn’t mind – they just enjoyed painting with the animals! Seeing them having fun and enjoying the process was so rewarding!

Every time I think I know everything I need to know about teaching young children, God says, "Hold on a minute!" and gives me a new challenge.

Let me tell ya...

With each new challenge that you overcome, you will find yourself better equipped and more passionate about teaching young children.

God didn't call wimps to lead, teach, or care for His children. Nope, he has high expectations, so get ready. You will have to give your very best but after teaching for over 30 years, I can tell you that it is a wonderful and rewarding journey.

Whenever your calling feels hard, just remember, 'He who began a good work in you (and in the children you serve) will be faithful to complete it.'
