The Letter of the Week is C

C is for Clara, of course.  But today, C is mostly for car!  Fun, fun car painting!  I got this idea from OMSI’s Science Playground, which we go to at least three times a month (we’re members), but I’ve only seen this once there. Once was not enough.  Its easy and fun.  No brushes required, and Clara loves it.  

All you need is some paint (I used washable tempera), a couple of little cars (matchbox or others; these were from Dollar Tree), a plate to put the paint on, and some paper.  Roll the cars through the paint, then roll the cars on the paper; repeat.  They make tracks, the paint colors mix, everyone has a joyful painting experience.  

That is until your little toddler decides that the paint tastes good and starts dipping her fingers in it and sucking them off.  How she can eat that stuff, I’ll never know.  Bubble solution, paint, markers, they all taste great to her.  I’ve tried them and they really do not.  Of course, she loves to take her vitamins, too and they taste like blood.  So, its a win/lose situation.  But, that was the end of Clara’s car painting.
