Car Art

For someone who doesn't enjoy art much, this was a big hit! First we put a piece of paper on the table, added some blobs of paint and Yusuf drove his car through the paint to make tracks. Ive been wanting to do this for a long time, and since he's going through a phase where he totally loves cars, I though this was a perfect opportunity.

As you can see from the look on his face, he loved this!

Decided to get a lil messy n do some handprints as well.

He was having so much fun that I took out a bigger piece of paper, he got some more cars and we added lots of blobs of paint.

He also decided he needed to change out of his shirt [which was long sleeved n required the sleeves to be rolled up] and put a short sleeved one on. More cars were added. And after almost a full hour of fun, we let it dry and hung it up on his door. = )
This was a definite favorite!

Oh, and as an extension, later in the evening when the boys were in the bath, I let Yusuf clean his cars with a toothbrush. He enjoyed playing car wash. The bath water got a lil murky, but I just gave the boys showers after they were done.


  1. This is great......he is having lots of different experiences with a one on one. Can't get much better than that.

  2. lol... i love the glow on his face... Reminded me of AR's expression, he saw me looking at the pics and said i want to car paint again... i think this is by far is the best BOY art activity.
