{oh, what do you do in the summertime} a little tipsy


Hi there! Michelle here, from A Little TipsyI am so excited to be visiting for such a fun series based on one of our favorite songs on one of my favorite blogs!

We are a Disney loving family and are so excited to be able to visit the new Cars Land in the fall. In the meantime, we made a little Cars fun of our own. 

This idea was actually inspired by my son's fantastic preschool teacher. While learning about the letter R, she sent them each home with a racecar of their own. A box with the edges folded in, spray painted and decorated with paper wheels, headlights and a license plate with their name on it.

Once home, my son insisted that we personalize it to look like Lightning McQueen complete with windshield eyes, toothy grin, and a spoiler. He cut and colored all the pieces himself and was so proud of his upgrades.

It could easily be painted blue for Sally or Finn McMissile or brown with a shoebox added for Mater.

The best part is all they have to do is climb in and let their imagination do the rest! Line up a group for a race or set them in front of the TV for a drive in movie, you decide.

Thanks again to Kierste for having us over and feel free to make a pit stop at our place any time!

My goodness, my boys would GO crazy about this!  They are currently obsessed with anything to do with Cars of Lightning McQueen, so I can definitely see this in our future!  Thanks so much, Michelle, for sharing such a fun activity!

I've made these before my kiddos too! I put ribbon on them also to wear on the boys shoulder so that didn't have to hold them the whole time. We made a firetruck, race car, and zamboni (my nephew is really into hockey! )

Another thing to do with your cars is go to a drive in movie. Right in front of the TV with popcorn and treats. This helps them settle down after all of the racing!
