Turn your favorite cars and trucks into a fun process art project!
- Easel paper
- Washable paint (brown)
- Vehicle toys (that can get wet)- construction vehicles | cars
- Large shallow bin
- Tear-free soap
Roll out a long piece of easel paper on the ground or a table (if you’re doing this activity in the grass, use cardboard instead of easel paper for a sturdy surface). Then, squirt some blobs of brown washable paint throughout the paper. Provide some toy vehicles for your child to drive through the brown paint to create muddy tracks! Once you’re done painting, fill a large shallow bin with water and tear-free soap to create a washing station. Now it’s time to wash all the “mud” off the vehicles!
