Driving a Rainbow

This had to be the most popular rainbow art we did all week.  The children loved it and several parents told me they were going to do it at home.
Using toy trains and buses the children dipped them in paint and drove them across their paper.
We have painted with toy vehicles before and I purposefully remove the chairs from the art table. 
Each time though I see someone trying to pull a chair over so I explain to them that this activity is great for using their whole body.  Without a chair it allows them to move freely, twisting their body side to side.
I appreciate the variety of movement I see in their art work.  Interesting how the lines are going in different directions.  There are long and short lines and curved lines too.
