Painting with Trucks - Art for Kids
Painting with trucks is a classic art activity for kids to watch colors blend and see the tracks left by different tires. It's a great way to paint without brushes, and it requires very little prep. That's my kind of art project! My little guys love painting with cars and trucks. In fact, almost every time we create a new homemade paint recipe, eventually the cars and trucks come out to take a ride in the new paint.
How to Paint with Trucks
I used paint cans from our garage to weigh down the butcher paper on our driveway. Rocks or anything heavy can be used.
I squirted paint on the butcher paper and invited them to grab trucks of different sizes and tires.
No instructions or encouragement was needed for them to get to painting.
I love this time of year, because it's warm enough to do messy sensory and art projects and then rinse off with the hose. I filled a bin of water when the boys were done painting, and they brought their trucks over to wash clean.
