Preschool Painting Activity

When setting up this activity make sure you do it on a washable surface or cover your table because most kids will get really into this activity and the cars could end up driving crazy all over.

On your covered surface put a blob of each rainbow colored paint down the side of a large white paper. Then we had one car per color blob.

Now it’s time for the fun part. Kids will drive over the paint and over the paper. For our activity we were making rainbows for a Spring / St. Patrick's Day theme. 

You could make a very interesting picture by encouraging kids to drive around on the paper any way they want to.

Preschool Activities

My preschooler thought this activity was GREAT! She loved the unique way of painting , the texture, seeing the unique track patterns she made and creating her own unique rainbow.

Racing cars in paint

Big brother and sister were both eager to get their hands on some cars to paint too.

Educational Twist

Write letters, numbers, or sight words on the piece of paper. Then tell your child to drive the blue hotwheel to the letter A (or word "is", number 5). This is great for reinforcing lots of concepts while making a fun, colorful project too!

  2. I have never thought to do this with a toy car. It definitely adds even more fun to the entire activity which children will definitely enjoy. However, I would most certainly need to be prepared to clean up the mess after.
