Using a shoe box (or similar rectangular box you may have lying around the house), cut 2 flaps loose, fold them into each other, and then glue them in place. See above and our finished example for reference.

Step 2 – Paint:

Driving In My Car Craft step 2

Start painting the car’s body (shoe box) and wheels (bottle caps). Remember – it doesn’t have to be perfect. Empower your kids to try their own colors and designs!

Step 3 – The Wheels:

Once your 4 wheels are dry, glue them onto the bottom sides of the box.

Your last remaining bottle cap will act as your stirring wheel. First, fold and glue your 2 pipe cleaners to each side of the bottle cap. Then glue your finished stirring wheel inside the car.
