Footprints in Paint

For literature studies, the boys and I read  The Snowy Day by Ezra Jack Keats and did a couple activities.  Our favorite one was rolling out some butcher paper on the cement outside and making footprints.  The boy in the story had fun making different footprints in the snow.  We used blue paint.

When the boys were done, the girls wanted in on the fun and picked pink and purple.  They cut out their favorite footprints and then just made a mess stomping around the rest of the paper.

We used washable tempera paint.  If you try this, just be careful because the first time that you step on the plate of paint and then on the butcher paper, it's really slippery!
