or tyre tracks as my family back home would say. Somebody is sure to yell at me for spelling it 'wrong'.
Upon receiving an invitation to a little friend's birthday party over the weekend and finding out that he likes cars and trucks I had the kids make very special wrapping paper for his gifts.
That's right, tire tracks. So fun. I purchased a pack of Cars tire stamps from Target for under $4 (4 per pack – located in the party section).
Another idea I had was to tie another little gift onto each parcel.
So here is a fun little experiment your kids can do at home. I call this the "Tire Track Experiment".
Take assorted tires and ink pads and let your kids explore the different patterns tires can make. The tires we used were from a Lego set, a random tire that had fallen off a car (I put a lollipop stick through the center), a toy car and the Cars stamp. I'm sure if you have a little boy in the house you have a lot of odd tires laying around in the mountains of cars and trucks they have collected.
This would make a great (shhh and educational) party activity for a cars or trucks themed party too. Or even just for your kids to play at home. Don't we all love rainy day activities. Use assorted stamps and print tire tracks on paper. The child who matches them all / the most tire tracks together with the stamps wins and receives a small prize.
