1. Roll out the brown Kraft paper onto a flat surface and cut off a large piece.

2. Pour some paint into the shallow container and smear it around a bit with your fingers. Add water if it seems too thick.

3. Roll the wheels of a toy car through the paint.

4. Run the car wheels, covered in paint, over the brown Kraft paper forming car track patterns.
