A ridiculously easy (and slightly messy) rainy day activity


I don’t usually post activity posts as there are so many brilliant activity based blogs out there already. But felt I had to share this as it kept my tiny lady quiet for half an hour…that’s right half an hour! Practically unheard of for a two year old – in this house anyway!


Things you will need:

*paint – any colour
*toy cars

That’s it just three things! Pop toddler in chair in old clothes – things will get messy! Pour some paint on to the paper and that’s it! Just let your toddler roll the cars through the paint. You can also paint the wheels of the cars to make more defined tracks. Toddler may decide to paint the whole car and this is okay too.



If you like your toy  cars  clean and sparkling don’t do this! I soaked mine in hot soapy water and they are still a little mucky. We don’t mind that here but some people might not enjoy the mess! As a former total neat freak I get this completely!


You can extend this activity by grabbing some pasta shells and painting those too. We used animal shaped pasta which added to the fun!
