Tire Rubbing: Get a tire tread from a tire shop (they may even be willing to cut an old tire in half (it will then look like half a donut). Place on a table the tire tread, a stack of white construction paper and peeled crayons. The children get a sheet of paper, lay it on the tire, rub with the crayon(s) and watch the tire pattern evolve.
