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

Transportation Preschool Activities and Transportation Crafts. Vroom, vroom! Zoom, zoom! Grease your wheels, start your engines, and get ready to roll. Have fun exploring the following modes of land transportation: cars, buses, and delivery trucks. We can travel to school, to the park, to the grocery store, to Grandma’s house, and just about anywhere else on land in cars and buses. And where would we be without delivery trucks? Just about everything is delivered by trucks from the food we eat to the clothing we wear, to the cars we drive, and to the materials our homes are made of. Samples of our more than 80 transportation crafts, cars, trucks, and buses activities, crafts, games, songs, rhymes, coloring pages, and printables.

Vehicle Color Graphing
Take your child to a place where you and your child can safely observe vehicles such as a parking lot. Ask him/her to tell you the colors of the different vehicles found there. List the colors as he/she lists them. Then help your child make a graph showing how many vehicles of each color were counted. Have your child tell you which colors were the least and most common. Ask your child if he/she can name any colors that were not found.

What Can a Tractor Trailer Haul?
Ask your child to think of things that can be hauled in a tractor trailer. 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.

Bus Depot Field Trip
Visit a bus depot with your child. While there, have your child look at the buses, where the tickets are bought, and any other amenities, such as a snack bar or gift shop. If possible, take a ride on the bus with your child.

Vehicle Obstacle Course
Have your child hold a hoop around his/her middle to represent a car, bus, or truck. Have him/her start his/her vehicle and drive it around. Provide obstacles on the “road,” such as a bench to climb over to represent a hill or a mat to jump over to represent a bridge over water. Have your child drive slow and then fast. As your child “drives,” play music to represent a radio in their truck.

Chalk Roadways
Have your child gather his/her toy vehicles and some sidewalk chalk. Go outside with your child and with him/her use the chalk to draw roads, road signs, buildings, etc. on the sidewalk. Then “drive” the vehicles on the chalk roadways.

Vegetable Automobiles
Provide your child with a celery stick and some peanut butter or low-fat cream cheese. Also have available sliced olives, cucumber slices, carrot sticks, and toothpicks. Have your child spread the peanut butter or low-fat cream cheese on the celery stick. Then have him/her use the other items to make an edible “automobile.”

Bus rhyme:

Preschool Bus bookBus Driver, Bus Driver

Bus driver, bus driver, may I have a ride?
(Hold up fist and wiggle thumb.)
Yes, yes, please step inside.
(Hold up other fist and wiggle thumb.)
Put in some money.
(Bend down first thumb.)
Step on the gas.
(Bend down other thumb.)
Chug-a-way, chug-a-way,
(Pretend to steer bus.)
But not too fast.


Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus!

Easy Paper Plate Car
Cut two circles (wheels) out of black craft paper. Cut a paper plate in half. Add the two wheels to the flat edge of the paper plate. Add details to car with markers or crayons.

The license plate can have random numbers and/or letters or be personalized with your child’s name or a cute or funny saying. Your child could also use number and/or letter sponges and paint to make prints on the shoe box lid (They could also cut large numbers and/or letters out of magazines and glue them to the shoe box lid.).
