I loved our flower wreath but it was looking a little worse for weather wear. It was time to freshen up the look of our front door with a new wreath.
When I asked C what he wanted to put on our new wreath his immediate response was: trucks. To make this wreath, we started by painting a paper plate black. Once it was dry, C used a yellow paint pen to draw in the yellow “road” lines down the middle.
Then I took an egg carton and cut up sections. C told me his favourite trucks and we made plans to create them. Q’s really into colours right now so we painted them a rainbow of colours for her.
Once the base colour for the vehicles was dry, C painted blue and black squares for windows. Once those squares were dry, I used paint pens to outline his windows and to add a few other details (for example, the ladder and the wording on the bus).
To finish up, I manned the glue gun and C added beads for headlights and buttons for wheels.
Our rainbow truck lineup involved a red fire truck, an orange car, a yellow school bus, a green garbage truck, a blue recycling truck, and a purple cement truck.
It’s a truckin’ rainbow that sure brightens up our front door!
