My little one LOVES buses. LOVES them. So we decided to get a little bit crafty and make our own yellow school bus from an empty box of saltine crackers.
First, I taped the box closed and painted a coat of white craft paint onto the box. Then, I painted the box yellow.
Second, I quickly pencil sketched the basic features of the bus and outlined with a black permanent marker.
Third, we filled in the red lights and stop sign with a red marker.
Fourth, we mixed a dab of blue and black paint into some white craft paint and painted the windows with a small brush.
Finally, we painted the wheels and the belly of the bus with black craft paint.
This is an easy and inexpensive project which is great for a rainy day!
