The sun isn't hanging out as often as you'd like anymore, raindrops are beginning to fall, the cold is creeping in and suddenly the outside doesn't seem too appealing. Now, that can result in a couple of days in doors every now and then can't it? And, days indoors can end in boredom. Not always. But, can do.
So, why not give 'Painting With Cars' a try? No reason not too.
This particular activity is really great for your kiddies when learning their colours. I took this opportunity actually to introduce the 'Colour Wheel'. We did the whole mixing colours thing and seeing what colour we ended up with. It's quite a fun way of doing it. It's also a fab sensory activity, with the kiddlets getting really stuck in and messy. Overall, it's just really good fun!
You will need
- As many cars as your little one desires. Go for all different shapes and sizes. It's the texture of the tyres that make the picture. So, go wild.
- As many different paint colours as you want. Best to stick with squeezy paints as it's easier to run your cars through.
- A wide shallow dish for your paints. The tall pots aren't that great for getting your cars in. And, you do need to give those tyres good coverage. So, allow yourself plenty of space in the pot for rolling your cars.
- An apron because let's face it. It is going to get messy.
- Paper of some description. Any size, any colour.
- Finally, a good dose of fun.
What you do
- Really? Come on. You cover the car wheels in paint and you go crazy on the paper. Just have fun. create as many or as little pieces of artwork that your littlie facies. Mix the colours up, paint one tyre one colour and the other another. Just have fun and allow your little one to explore.
