Question to the blogger community? Do you spray paint or paint toys for your kids?
I bought something similar to this last week at the new Harrisville, UT DI. I got it for $1.50.
My ultimate goal is to turn into into a homemade version of this:
and be able to turn any shopping cart into a car cart.
My son loves car cart and the only time I can have an enjoyable shopping experience is to let him ride in one. There are a few problems with these car carts though:
1. They are ALWAYS dirty and disgusting
2. They are almost twice as long as a regular cart and I have nearly knocked over displays trying to navigate one.
I didn't love the dorky vibes that my thrift store steering wheel toy was giving off so I took it apart, removed the stickers, and spray painted it. When my husband saw it he got upset and said I couldn't spray paint toys, that my cheapy spray paint might contain lead, that Graham would chew on the toy and scratch off the paint.
So, do you spray paint toys? Is my husband right? Should I scrap this project, look for a new steering wheel toy, and let it be dorky in all it's glory? HELP!
