Car Painting

Posted on

I had a lot of trouble trying to get Thomas interested in painting initially. He can’t get enough of it now but it was like torture when he was little! He loves cars though so combining his interest in cars with painting was a great way to get him interested and motivate him to try painting.

What you will need:

  • Poster paint (we chose red and green and talked about red light stop, green light go)
  • Large sheet of paper
  • Selection of cars
  • Large plastic plate or lid of large container
  • Damp cloth
Prepare paint on cloth on plate and run cars through the paint so wheels are covered.
To extend this experience we sang songs like “take you riding in my car” and “wheels on the bus” while we were painting.
