Transportation Week at Preschool


Transportation Week at Preschool

Making Cardboard Cars

When we were learning about Transportation, the children learned many ways we get around. As an activity, the kids got to make their own car to pull their stuffed animals around in. We used construction paper to cover the sides. We made license plates with our names on it. The kids cut out circles for the wheels and we glued on the steering wheels. A brad would have been cooler so it would turn, but I didn’t have any, so that is that. I looped a long piece of yarn through so they could pull it around the house. My kids played with them for weeks before I finally gave them the boot. You always know it is a success when the older kids come home from school and immediately get to work recreating what we did at preschool.

Painting with Wheels

This made the kids’ day. We had trains, cars, and even a few motorcycles. This wasn’t a letter specific day for us but you can do C for Cars, T for Trains and Trucks, and W for Wheels.

This was one of our first activities for our 2-3 year olds. It was cutting skills. I traced lines on a paper in both directions. One boy needed to start out with tearing. After small pieces are made, then they get to match where the colors go, and learn those colors. This was for our Transportation Theme.
