2. YARN tied around the tin can.
Just use a simple knot and cut the extra yarn off.

4. Big piece of paper to paint on. You can use paper bags for this (Check out my post on how to reuse paper bags!)

Squeeze some paint onto the paper. Then roll the tin can around and have messy fun! Great for gross motor skills 😉
