So my daycare kiddos are starting to transition this week and Ethan has taking a trip to Grammie and Poppa's house for the week! The theme for this week is PAINTING! I love painting with the kids and it is pretty hard to find a kid that doesn't like painting!
Today we did painting with cars! When you have 2 boys that are obsessed with cars and one that isn't as obsessed with doing crafts, you need to be creative! I figured I could use his love for cars, and incorporate it with Arts and Crafts!
This one is pretty simple. All you need is Paint in small containers, Paper, a few cars, and a drop sheet to save your table!
|I wanted to keep their attention, so I only went with three colours|
Mr. Brody (not so arts and crafts interested) LOVE IT! His cars BRRRRRROOOMMMM and VVRRRROOOMMM all over his paper! At first it took a little convincing that it was OK that his hands got some paint on them...but once he figured that out he was good to go!
(Yes my kitchen is bright orange! - yuck I know, but we will get around to painting it one day!)
|CRASH! He started crashing the cars together and laughing because paint was splattering|
Getting Brody interested was pretty easy today! And he had lots of fun painting!
Logey on the other hand...he would sit and paint all day if I let him!
He had all 3 cars going at the same time on his paper!
He started crashing his cars together too, after seeing Brody do it!
And of course, it started turning into a little finger painting by the end of it!
This was a great little activity to peak the boys interest in painting and get them ready for the other painting crafts I have planned for the rest of the week! Shockingly, not that mess either, if you have a cloth on hand for when they are done! I'm happy that my kids starting daycare because my bare walls are still driving me crazy and I need pretty art work like this to get them covered!
Once the boys were done, and I was putting the stuff away, I noticed they were sitting in the playroom having a 'conversation' looking like this.....
I just couldn't not take a picture of the two bucket heads!
Watch for more painting theme crafts this week! :)
