Painting with Cars

The two elements that made this special was the larger scale of the activity and the fact that the cars could propel themselves forward through the paint and RACE! So fun and so easy to set up!


  • WASHABLE paint
  • Toy cars (these ones from B.Toys propel forward when you pull them back and which made them extra fun!)
  • Butcher/easel paper
  • Tape

Start by taping the butcher paper to the floor and squirting a dash of paint at the start line. 

To paint just pull the cars back and watch them drive across the paper leaving a trail of paint behind them!

Ways to extend the activity: Put the butcher paper on a slide or other makeshift ramp to really watch the cars fly!
