Craft Ideas to Make With Car Coloring Pages
Introducing a collection of car-themed coloring page projects sure to rev up the creativity in young minds!
These engaging activities are tailored for toddlers and older kids, turning simple coloring pages into dynamic art projects. Vroom, vroom–let's fuel your child’s imagination.
1. Personalized Race Tracks:
Start with having younger kids choose their favorite coloring pages of cars.
After they’ve colored the cars, give them some colored construction paper or cardboard.
They can use these materials to design their own racetracks. Once completed, they can place their colored car pictures on the tracks, adding obstacles or pit stops.
2. 3D Car World:
Turn a simple coloring page into a three-dimensional car haven!
After filling in the car coloring pages, help the kiddos cut the cars out. Hand out popsicle sticks and have them glue their cars onto the stick, creating a "standee" effect.
Using a sturdy cardboard base, make small slits so the children can insert their popsicle car stands. This creates a stand-up 3D car world for endless imaginary play - and it’s a great way to practice fine-motor skills!
3. My Dream Garage:
Give each child a large piece of drawing paper. Ask them to imagine and design their dream garage. Have them think about its size, equipment, and other features they want to include.
Provide magazine images or printables of tools, car mechanic equipment, or car wash stations.
Kids can cut out and paste these images onto their dream garage along with their favorite car.
4. Storybook Cars:
Using a small booklet or stapled paper, ask the kids to write a short story about their colored car's adventures. This could be a journey it went on, races it won, or friends it made along the way.
After writing their stories, the students can use their colored car pages as illustrations, gluing or drawing them on corresponding pages.
This is a great independent activity for older kids who can write on their own. To use this activity with toddlers or preschoolers, have them describe what’s happening in their car coloring page story rather than write it.
5. Design a License Plate:
Hand out small rectangles of cardstock to each child. Share images of some sample license plates for inspiration.
After coloring their cars, the kids can create personalized license plates using markers or crayons. Encourage them to be creative with initials, birthdays, or fun phrases.
6. Magnetic Cars:
Transform your child's coloring page into a fun and functional art with this magnetic car activity! Watch their creations stick to fridges, magnetic boards, or lockers for a unique display.
After the children have colored and cut out their car coloring sheet, give them small adhesive magnets.
Stick the magnets on the back of the cars. Now, these cars can be placed on fridges, magnetic boards, or lockers. It’s a fun way to create a craft that can travel with your child!
Since magnets can pose a serious choking hazard, this craft is only recommended for kids who are three-years-old or older.
7. Car Puppets:
Get ready to rev up your creativity that transforms coloring pages into car puppets, providing endless storytelling possibilities in a puppet show.
Once the car coloring pages are colored and cut out, give each child a paper bag or an old sock.
They can glue or tape their car to the bag or sock, creating a car puppet. Organize a puppet show where kids can narrate stories using their car puppets.
8. Racing Animations:
Teach your kiddos about the concept of flipbook animations.
For this activity, you’ll need construction paper and several copies of the same simple car coloring page. Cut out all the cars.
Have the kids glue one car per piece of construction paper. Each car should be glued in a slightly different position than the previous one.
Once completed, quickly flip through the pages to see their cars resemble actual moving race cars.
Alternatively, for an online coloring page, use a simple animation app on tablets. Kids can drag and drop their car images to create a short animation.
9. Car Stamps:
Unleash your artistic skills and create your car stamps on paper or cardboard.
Once the car coloring pages are filled in, give the kids foam or sponge shapes.
Have them glue these to the back of their cars. Next, give them paint trays to dip their car stamps in.
Kids can stamp these car shapes onto paper or cardboard to create repeating patterns of vehicles. Use different shapes like pickup trucks, sports cars, or classic cars.
This is an exciting way to create car scenes for both younger and older kids.
10. Custom Car Badges:
Here’s a way for children to show off their favorite cars and their artistic talents at the same time!
Print out some coloring pages of cars, trucks, or other vehicles at 25% scale. Have the kids fill them in with vibrant colors. Cut out the car illustrations.
Help children attach the car cutout to their shirt or backpack with a safety pin or by placing the car inside of a pin badge.
Kids can even create a trading game on the school bus with their peers!
