Get muddy feet


When looking for animals in the wild it’s a good idea to keep an eye out for footprints in the mud. Why not have a go at making some at home?


This mark-making activity will bring the story to life and is an important step for helping your child learn to write!


  1. Using paint and paper, paint the bottom of your child’s foot and let them make their very own footprints
  2. Have a go at creating animal markings using a fork, a pencil or your fingertips. You could make footprints for birds, dogs or even bears!
