It was one of those days. My seven year old was at school, my baby was down for a nap, and my four year old needed something new to do. It had been a while since we worked on a project together and after thinking about it for a minute I decided on this little race car craft. My four year old loves cars and he loves to paint so it was perfect.
We hunted down a wrapping paper tube, cut it into pieces, and got to painting. Then came the bigger task of cutting out all those wheels and the steering wheels.
After the tubes dried my four year old decorated them with markers. We then attached the wheels with brads and taped on the steering wheels. Then they were ready to play with!
It was a good project that left us both happy.
