WW: Color and Clean Car Wash

on August 22, 2012

Hello Parents,

Today’s Weekend Wednesday activity comes to us from No Time for Flashcards, a great for many working parents who love to spend fun time with their children. This is a fun activity in which you probably already have all the supplies needed around the house. With that said, we know kids love to color and play with water, so let’s combine both with a Color & Clean Car Wash.

This activity is pretty simple, and doesn’t need much instruction, but here go the steps as posted on the No Time for Flashcards blog.

Matrials:
Washable window markers
Plastic ride-on car or toy cars
Sponge
Soap
Water

*Test the window markers on your toy cars before assuming they will wipe off.

  1. Gather your materials. You will need some window markers, some warm water, a soapy sponge and some plastic riding toys.

  1. Start by coloring the cars.

  1. One tip is to use dark colors that show up well first to give your toddler a good sense of making marks. The pale ones may frustrate young ones when they are hard to see.
  2. Dip your sponge in the water . To be honest I think she liked wringing out the sponge more than anything and I liked that she was having fun.
  3. Wipe away the coloring.

This is a simple activity worth doing as often as the kids want!again and again!

Fun Learning!
