I’ve been brainstorming about what to do with the 100 wooden toy wheels I have lying around. I seem to have a habit of collecting supplies for projects that I never end up completing (I was originally going to paint the wheels to look like donuts for Jake’s birthday party). Since Jake is car obsessed and I’ve been meaning to find a way to teach colors, I thought why not create a color matching wheel game. Here’s the best part…this toddler activity is cheap and easy!
Step 2: Draw a car, truck, bike or anything with wheels onto your paint chips. I lucked out and happened to have a car puzzle piece that I just traced, but you could also look online for some free clipart. Outline your drawing with a pen. I used a silver Sharpie.
Step 3: Paint your wooden wheels with acrylic paint. I only did one coat because I have no patience but if you’re really crazy you could do 2 coats of paint and finish it off with a varnish. The picture above was how I let my wheels dry. This image and step really isn’t necessary, I just thought it looked pretty!
