Harry had a great time rolling the bus across the paper making painty tracks. He enjoying singing the nursery rhyme 'The Wheels on the Bus' as he played.

After a while he decided to invent his own version of the nursery rhyme.  We had the babies on the bus going crawl crawl crawl as Harry covered his hands in paint and crawled across the paper.

Then we had the daddies on the bus going walk walk walk as Harry dipped his feet in the paint and walked across the paper.

Finally a paint covered Harry decided the children on the bus would go ride ride ride and he sat on top of our bus and rode it across the paper.

Harry enjoyed singing the nursery rhyme, making up silly versions of the rhyme and getting totally covered in paint.
