Painting With Toy Cars – Writing Activity For Kids 13


One great memory I have is when my daughter wrote her name by herself and brought it to me.
I got teary eyed. Okay maybe I cried. I was so happy. She was so proud of herself as well, which I think brought more tears to my eyes. Precious moment!

I think a child’s name is probably one of the first thing that they learn to write. It is their name.
But my daughter gets so bored just writing letters. I would get so frustrated until I realized that there are so many other mediums that can be used to help a child learn to write. It does not need to be a pencil or even a marker. There is crayons, sidewalk chalk, and paint. PAINT!

We do quite a few painting projects in our home. I love painting and my daughter has picked up a love for it too.
So to make sure that doesn’t become monotonous, I try and change up how we paint, what we paint with, and what we paint on!

This project was a complete mix up of technique! We painted with toy cars and painted on tissue paper! It was AWESOME. We used hot wheels cars, mini construction trucks, a train and even a bus.

I chose tissue paper because each sheet is bigger than a typical piece of paper. This allowed for more room for bigger letters that would be required when painting with toy cars! I was afraid that the paint would run through the tissue paper and it would rip easily, but it didn’t. It held together perfectly.

I began to trace the letters of my daughter’s name on the tissue paper, but she got mad. She wanted to do it completely on her own. If you need to, though, trace with a pencil. If you do it with a light enough touch, it won’t tear the tissue paper.

After we did the letters of her name, and a few other letter practicing, and then the random designs began.
We experimented with the different toy cars to see the different textures the tires made and making the different tracks. We even ended up painting some of the outsides of the cars. She called it a ‘Car Makeover’.

My favorite part of the activity is that we used Hot Wheels Tracks as the vessel for the paint. It made it SO easy to get paint on the tires of each toy car. It also cleaned up so nicely. It was great!
