Cars Down Ramps In Paint

Last week was our transportation unit. One of our favorite activities is running small cars through paint and rolling them down a rain gutter.

We put strips of paper on parts of the gutter to pick up the tracks.


Make sure to have a tray at the bottom to collect the wet cars!
This is fun for both 2 and 3 year olds.


I’m linking up with It’s Playtime!

  1. I love this! I wish we had some open gutters around the house – but I’ll come up with something else! Great idea to take outside (or inside like this).

    I’d love for you link this post up to our new party today – It’s Playtime!

    Thanks so much for the great ideas, as always!

  2. Neat idea, Sheryl! Looks like fun!

  3. Oh – I think my nephew would do this all day!

  4. Too fun!

  5. Love this one. I dont have any rain gutters either but i’m thinking maybe wrapping paper rolls or something?

  6. A note on raingutters – I purchased one at Hope Depot over 10 years ago. My husband sawed it in half. They have taken so much abuse, inside and out, and are still in perfect condition! A bit scratched, but that’s it! I highly recommend it. In fact, I’m thinking of buying another and sawing them into 4 shorter ramps.

  7. Thanks for stopping over and linking this up!!

    I hope to see more of your ideas next Thursday too!

  10. Thank you for featuring it, Deborah!
