this is a craft my preschoolers in my home daycare could do. they love to paint. I would let the base green paint dry first before putting the lighter green spots on to avoid muddying up the colors.

Hi Becky! You're actually right! This activities are perfect for small kids. It's easy and fun to do, too! You can actually make different animals out of it, or maybe use other materials to add up to the design. Very creative, right?
