This fun toy car activity involves both art and play for toddlers and preschoolers. Simply fasten colored markers to toy cars and let kids zoom away with colorful lines.
Place a large sheet of paper at the center of your mat. Prepare three or more medium-sized toy cars as well.
Position one colored marker at the back of a toy car. The marker's tip must be level with the bottom of the wheels. Tape the marker in place.
Place the car on your paper and take it for a test drive. The marker should be drawing clear colored tracks as the car moves. Adjust the position of the marker, if necessary.
Tape a colored marker at the back of each remaining toy car.
It's best to cover your work/play area with a large mat or with several newspapers. Place your paper at the center. Let kids have fun playing and drawing with the toy cars.
