When thinking about a craft activity for our Letter C week, I did think about clowns or caterpillars, then I remembered that the boys loved painting with cars at a toddler group last summer.

So we chose a selection of cars, making sure to choose cars with different types of tyres. I put out 2 plates with paint on so they could drive the cars through the paint, then on to the paper. I also gave them each a sheet of scrap paper to use as a 'car park' to reduce the mess, this worked well & the 'car parks' turned in to good pictures as well!
Both boys have been really enjoying the painting that we have been doing recently, but getting the chance to get messy with toy cars made this much more interesting.
After we had finished our painting Daniel (2.5) helped me clean up by washing the cars. I placed an ice cream tub of warm soapy water on top of a towel, this was for the cars to dry on & to soak up any spills. Daniel really liked this as he loves anything to do with water (like our Lego wash)
