Colouring on Corrugated Cardboard

Bilal's on the left, Hasan's on the right.

Before Bilal was born I used to take Hasan to the Ontario Early Years Centre.  We would go to a session called Messy Play which when I first read that title I thought this was not for Hasan.  Hasan hates getting messy...as soon as something gets on his hands he has to clean it...finger painting was never his thing.   But everything wasn't "messy" and he really enjoyed the time he spent there.  Once when we were there they had corrugated cardboard laid out on a table.  The activity was to dip a toy car in paint and run it back and forth on the corrugated cardboard to make tracks.  Since I was having both the boys do this I had them use oil pastels.

Bilal really enjoyed this activity.  Hasan finished it very quickly and was ready to move on.

Materials Needed:
Corrugated Cardboard
Oil Pastels or Crayons

How To:
Have your child colour across the corrugated cardboard.  Can also have them dip a toy car in paint and drive it back and forth on the corrugated cardboard.
