CRAFTivities- Cars

C is for CAR


We did this coloring page
**********************************
Scripture/Story: Isaiah 40:31 (NASB-my translation preference)
"Yet those who wait for the LORD
Will gain new strength;
They will mount up with wings like eagles,
They will run and not get tired,
They will walk and not become weary."


It was really hard to pick a Scripture this week since there are so many scriptures about cars. :)
I thought this would be appropriate.

For this he just repeated the scripture after me and we read together.


**********************************
We used several coloring pages from
First School

**********************************
CARS The Movie
Movie Night



**********************************
CAR/Transportation PUZZLE
Activity Cost $3
(Target)

He is so into this puzzle! Every day he has woken up and gone straight over to it! He does it surprisingly well. He's much more patient with it than I thought he would be.
*You can also print a car puzzle, laminate it and cut it at First School*
It's meant to do online but it works well and a print out too.


***********************************
TP ROLL CAR CRAFT
Activity Cost $3 or less
Most items you can find at home or substitute for items at home

TOOLS: TP Roll, Black card stock, white paper, buttons, pipe cleaner, markers, glue, scissors

I figure I don't need to explain how to do this since its so simple you can just see from the pic.
I will say though that for the TP roll I cut the shape out just on the front and back part but left the top middle part alone. My goal with this was to add a bit of texture.
Do I need to tell you that he loves it?



**********************************
PT ROLL STOP LIGHT CRAFT
Activity Cost: $3

Tools: PT roll, red, yellow and green foam, black construction paper, cardboard piece cut into rectangle, tape, glue, scissors

Z walks around with it saying, "STOP CAR!"



Valerie had a GREAT idea to do with a stoplight craft..Play Red Light Green Light!
Here a link from Preschool Post (I think this is one of many amazing sites) it's a safety theme with lots of activities and crafts that you can incorporate with a car theme or one of several others!

**********************************
BOOK PICNIC

I got this idea form No Time For Flash Cards & The Whipples
After our trip to the library we went straight home pulled out the blanket, got some ice cream and read all the books we got that day. I try to make Mondays our library day and I'd like to add the picnic to the day as well indoor or outdoor. It's a great way to introduce the theme.




**********************************
Ceramic Car Painting
Activity Cost: $1
Micheal's



**********************************
Car Wash Sensory Tub
Activity Cost: Free

TOOLS: Tub, toy cars, dish soap, water, scrubbers/sponges etc...



**********************************
Dirve Thru Car Wash
Activity Cost: $3-5

I took Z through a Drive Thru Car Wash. I thought it would be fun for him. I used to LOVE it when I was a kid. I was actually going to take him to one where he could watch it go through but then I'd have to clean out my car. Laziness won.


**********************************
Ongoing Blanket Craft
Activity Cost: $2.50

This is the material he picked out.


**********************************
Ramp Craft & Car Race


**********************************
Transportation Crayons

I saw someone selling something like these and thought they were way cool! I spent way too long looking up how to make them (UGH!) but I found that No Time For Flash Cards did this even with the same molds I used. She has a great tutorial on hoe to do it. I wont tell you how I did it because I don't want to be responsible for you starting a fire in your home!

Thanks for linking us and letting me know! We haven't had a picnic outside yet, but we've been having pretend ones inside. No food yet...she has a blast just pretending. We have had a few more book parties, but it's all about the books for her. Isn't that awesome!?

Your car craftitivies are awesome! Thanks for sharing! I think we're going to try trains this week.
