This simple play activity from clareslittletots.co.uk takes a few minutes to set up, costs nothing and uses things you’ll already have around the house.
You will need:
- Toy cars
- Felt pens (washable)
- Large roll of paper
- Sticky tape
Roll out the paper on to a hard floor and secure at the corners and in the middle using sticky tape. Then attach the pens to the back of the cars using tape….and let them play / draw.
Toddlers will have great fun pushing, pulling, racing and moving cars round the paper as well as picking them up to check out the. They will get covered in it so make sure they’re washable!
This simple play could be extended further by encouraging older children to make patterns, shapes or practice writing letters and numbers.
