Creative Cars

This was a really fun class I did at the OKCMOA for kids ages 3-5. We read a book, talked about the parts on a car and used the Jonathan Hils exhibition, INTERSECTION as our inspiration. In the classroom we had so much fun! ***note: This is a LOT of prepwork and is not typical. This class was for 10 kids. I think this is a great project for a moms with a few kids and if you're crazy enough to do this for more than 10 kiddos I'm pretty sure you earn sainthood. :)


I prepped by painting banker boxes and cutting out an area on the bottom of the box leaving a 2 inch area around it to attach suspenders and to keep the box in it's shape. The kids chose a color and got to work. If you plan on painting allow this to be a two day project.



The material table included colored tape, paper, solo cups, paper plates and more to decorate our cars.





You can see we used paper plates and brads for wheels and solo cups attached with brads for headlights.






I cut 4 slots for ribbon on the boxes. We threaded ribbon to make suspenders for kids to wear their cars out of the classroom! Of course we had to have a car parade first!

You will need:
-a box (copy boxes are great. I bought a package of banker boxes at Walmart for 11 dollars)
-paint for car color (allow time to dry)
-paper plates
-solo cups
-glue sticks, school glue
-construction paper scraps
-ribbon to make suspenders
-anything else you want to add!

so cool! Looks like a lot of prep. . . your kids are VERY lucky to have you for a teacher! Just in time for Halloween too:) Awesome.

That is one HUGE project. Erica is right... your kids are very lucky.

I admit, it was a lot of work. This is really a project for moms to do at home with one or two kids. I cannot imagine doing this one for a classroom of 20 kids. It was fun on a small scale and might work for a little preschool class too.

My preschool class showed an interest in race cars. I had just the right amount of cookie case cardboard boxes.I set out the paint and each child made their own unique car. We added stripes, numbers, license plates, even made drivers licenses. I didn't know how we were going to "race" them until I saw your suspender idea. I can't wait to try it. This has been a week long project and will continue as long as they are interested. I'm so glad I found your blog - thanks!

Really interesting, a child will ever want to have toys like this. I wish could also have these when I was a child.
