Sung to: "Bingo"
Before the song, practice putting on your seatbelts, and turning the ignition.  "Drive" your car while you sing.
Look at my bright shiny car
I'm driving it today.

Wheels on the Bus (of course)


Tire Track Painting
Put out a bunch of toy cars and stamp pads.  Let the kids roll the cars over the stamp pads and "drive" them over the paper.  When they are done put out buckets of soapy water and little sponges and let the kids have a "car wash".  My kids liked the soapy water better than the craft.  The second time I did this craft I put leftover tops of deli trays (see left) under the bins of soapy water.  Easy craft and very fun.
