vrooooom…car painting

I find this to be a fun activity for a rainy day.

I Line a table with an old shower curtain or table cloth or lots of newspapers. Then lay out long sheets of paper or many smaller sheets of paper tapped together.

I Place different colored paints on paper plates.

Then place one or two toy cars, trucks, tractors  on each plate. (I like to choose vehicles with various tire patterns)

The children cover the tires of each vehicle with paint (rolling car in the paint) and then drive it on the paper.  I model this once or twice but then let them loose… The colorful tracks and the different track textures makes for really cool looking designs!

When it’s time to clean up we play car wash – place all the cars into a basin with warm soapy water and drive them around, scrub them and then towel dry!
