• Duct tape
• Washable markers, crayons, paint, stickers, decals, fringe, and other decorative materials • Book about cars and trucks

Instructions

• Read a book about cars and trucks together and study the pictures. • Cut the top and bottom off a large box, leaving the sides intact. • Use duct tape to cover any rough edges and to reinforce corners, if needed. • Help your child decorate the outside of the box to look like a car or truck using felt-tip pens, paint, stickers, and so on. • When the car is finished, let your child take a drive around the house or yard. • For added fun, set up roads by laying down rope as a guide, and set up stop signs along the route.
