Sensory Saturday: Tractor Tracks
Hello there, friends!
Last week’s Sensory Saturday introduced you all to my son’s new obsession – tractors and trucks. We made a painting to reflect that obsession and now I am considering buying smaller canvases to put tractor/truck tracks on them and hang them beside the painting we have. I wanted to give it a sort of test run first, before I bought any new canvas. So this week’s Sensory Saturday was born.
We are STILL using the leftover paint from our Mother’s Day craft (such an amazing deal!) and the only other items we needed were plates for the paint and an assortment of tractors, trucks, and cars.
I showed the kids how to start and then they took off with it. Oliver was even interested this time!
I talked to Maddy about the different wheel sizes and how they would make different tracks. She really observed the vehicles after I discussed this with her.
Oliver went back to business as usual.
Maddy kept commenting on the different tracks and then became consumed with mixing the colors of the paint.
That inevitably led to other paint mixing.
Cleanup, once again, became an activity of its own. We had a tractor-wash where the kids were able to hold the hose and spray the vehicles down.
Oliver didn’t quite understand the whole “washing the vehicles” thing.
No worries, revenge is sweet. 🙂
Maddy discovered that the smaller cars could be moved with the water and had a fun time trying to see how far she could make them travel.
After the cleanup was all said and done and the kids were safely napping in their beds, I was able to see the evidence of little feet that live in my home. And for that, I was extremely grateful.
What do you think? Should I do some tractor tracks to go with Oliver’s painting? Let me know what you think in the comments!
Have a beautiful weekend with your family!
