I love 2 in 1 activities especially when it involves cleaning. Adan loves cars, painting and water play. So I combined them all. We did a car painting activity followed by a car wash.
Materials for Car Painting:
- Construction paper
- Toy cars
The activity is simple just put the cars in the paint and drive them around on the paper.
So simple and yet so entertaining. Adan is a very creative animated kid so he actually plays and paints. He was crashing them, racing them and acting like they were monster trucks. I didn’t have to be so hands on because he just entertained himself.
After he was done painting it was car wash time.
Materials for Car Wash:
- Dish soap
- Hand towel
Put a few drops of dish soap in a bowl and fill with water. Give your child the brush and they will do all the cleaning!
Once all the cars are clean have them dry them off with a towel. This is also good practice for when they are ready to wash dishes
