Messy fun with toy cars


This is a great fun messy painting activity for kids who love cars. It's also a fun way to explore comparisons (e.g. bigger than/smaller than) and colour mixing. You can make a dynamic car artwork with your track painting by sticking pictures of cars on top.

Time: 30 minutes
Age: Under 5's, 5-10's
Level: Easy

Materials
Shallow box - optional but it helps to contain the mess. It could be a plastic tray or you can cut down a cardboard box like we did.
Paper
Paint and paint trays
Selection of toy cars which can be washed afterwards. Try to pick a range of sizes, smooth wheels/patterned wheels etc
Newspaper
Pictures of cars from magazines
Glue

Method
Lay out newspaper and put paper in the bottom of your shallow box

Ready to paint


Set out a selection of cars. With older children, spend some time looking at the different wheels - which ones are bigger/ which are smaller; which are smooth/ which are patterned etc. Try to predict how their tracks will look different to the others.
