    3. Paper in trays (cookie sheets)
    4. A dish of water for the car wash
    5. Paper towels

Fun Kids Activity: Rainbow Car PaintingThen they drove their cars through the paint and then on their papers.  In between colors the cars went through the “car wash” to rinse off.  The cars don’t need to be completely clean to go in the next color as long as most of the globs are off.

Painting Fun for Kids: Rainbow Car PaintingsIt was so interesting to see how they made the rainbows with the cars since I didn’t provide any instructions.  When we did the shaving cream painting with fingers and brushes my 2 year old did not make a rainbow shape at all and I had expected her to follow a similiar process today.  With the cars she drove it in an arc each time — very interesting!  The sensory experience this time was the tool instead of the paint.
