Construction Crafts, Construction Preschool Activities, Arts And Crafts and Printables

New May 2011: Construction Preschool Activities and Crafts. Get to work building knowledge with this construction zone theme. Find songs, rhymes, literacy ideas, math activities, movement activities, recipes, and literature focusing on the workers, the machines, and the tools that build the structures we use and visit everyday. Children develop vocabulary, add, subtract, sequence, read, match shapes, count, and so much more as they learn about the world of construction. So, put on a hard hat and a tool belt and put this theme to work. Samples of our more than 90 construction crafts, activities, crafts, games, songs, rhymes, coloring pages, and printables.

Construction Zone
Make your block area into a construction zone. Put up caution tape and signs saying construction area. Add extra blocks and construction vehicles for your children to pretend to be construction workers. Add hard hats to the area and tape pictures of construction machines on the wall as a backdrop.  

Visit a construction site with your children.

What Can a Dump Truck carry?
Ask your child to think of things that can be hauled in a dump truck. As your child makes suggestions, write them on a sheet of paper. Point to the words as you read them back to your child. Encourage your child to repeat the words and to point to any letters that they recognize.
