Materials Needed

Let's Create!

  • ​​We reccommend doing this activity on a splat mat or another area that can get messy! **Hint: Grab a damp washcloth and have it close by for when you are finished with this project!

  • Tape the paper down in the middle of the splat mat (to prevent it from sliding around) then:

6 months+ : use finger paints - place some paint on the bottom of the wheels for your little one and guide with your hand on theirs to move the plane over the paper horizontally.

10 months+ : Place a blob of paint on the paper and show your little one how you press the airplane's wheels into it and then move it over the paper horizontally.
