Car Painting

I love finding new things to paint with other than brushes! Sometimes you just have to take a look around your home for some inspiration. One of my favorite paint brush substitutions is a toy car.

I made a mixture of one part glue and one part purple paint in a container, and then I had my class roll toy cars through the paint and onto the paper. You can just paint with the cars for an abstract work of art, or do what we did and add to it. We made trains out of construction paper and stuck them right on top of the paint/glue mixture.

This is a great project with minimal supplies... but be prepared to get a little messy!

  • Glue
  • Paint color of your choice
  • Plastic toy car
  • Messy mat
  • Construction paper
  • Cotton balls
  1. Mix half glue and half paint together. 
  2. Roll car through paint and onto construction paper. 
  3. Cut your construction paper to your design of choice. 
  4. Stick onto car tracks.
