As I mentioned before, my son Goober isn’t exactly the artsy-craftsy type. I really wasn’t sure how he would react when I mentioned the idea of painting with cars…but I should have known. They are cars, after all. He immediately went to work selecting cars and sorting them into categories (big tires, smooth tires, bumpy tires, etc).
We put tempera paint onto small plates and he got right to work. For the next 30 minutes (the longest he’s ever spent on a craft), there was lots of this:
Which resulted in this:
He had such a blast. I had a great time watching him, too. And FYI for the moms…wet tempera paint washes right off of matchbox cars.
Bubby got in on the action as well:
OK, not really…but he’s cute!
Thanks again, Terri, for all of your help — it’s been a great blessing!
