Today we chugged along our paper and created great train tracks and prints!
Inspired by a post from Mosswood Connections, we could not wait to try it for ourselves!
We got a long long long piece of paper and squirted some paint into cake tins.
Then we rolled the trains through the paint, and got painting the longest train tracks ever!
We rolled and rolled and rolled, until our little trains were tired!
Then we decided it would be a good idea to print onto the tracks using the blocks that usually stack up onto the train!
This was lots and lots of fun, especially since the prints were giving us ‘holes’ in the middle!
And when we were completely choo choo’ed out, we stood back and admired our masterpiece!
The only thing left to do – our second favorite activity after painting – was to “washer washer.”
So we stood quietly next to the sink and washed our train back to new!
I enjoyed this activity because it added a new dimension to our toys!
It also required a little movement – I like to get the kids moving during art!
Emma thought it was great fun – we did it twice!
