You can check your local dollar store to see if you can find some flat truck magnets, but if not, you can use the template here to print your own on cardstock, laminate or cover with clear contact paper, then add magnets to the back. This is great for sight word work or simple letter matching practice.
You may want to set this one up ahead of time so that the little ones can jump right in and play or older kids with more patience might want to help in the creation. Do what works for your kiddos. This playmat will likely make several appearances throughout the week and beyond!
Kids love to create fun art projects with a variety of different tools. The wheels of toy trucks can create some really fun patterns and make for an exciting way to explore your artistic side. Just make sure to be careful about where you set this activity up!
Remember those trucks that ended up covered in washable paint this morning? Now’s a great time to clean them up with a backyard car wash! You might need to give them a little help to make sure that all of the mess is cleaned out of the cracks and crevices.
AM: School Bus Craft – You’ll want to find or print some pictures of the family for this activity, but in a pinch, you can always draw people in the windows of the bus. This is such a simple craft that ends up being super-personalized and a fun one to hang on the fridge or playroom wall.
PM: Construction Site Sensory Table If you don’t have a playtable or water table that will work for this activity, you can always use a large bin to contain the beans and other materials. It’s easy to make it work with what you have access to at home!
AM: Travel Pretend Play Grab your passports or make up some pretend ones and start planning your airplane trip around the world! If you want to get really fancy with this activity, make your snack or lunch themed to the final destination of your travel adventure.
PM: Straw Truck Craft Drinking straws are such an easy and fun craft material and you can use whatever lids you have on hand as wheels for this craft. The placement of the straws is so much fun that the kids won’t even realize that they’re doing important fine motor work!
AM: Fire Truck Craft You may to work on cutting out the shapes ahead of time for this one, but even if your little one isn’t ready to cut for themselves, they’ll still get some great practice on shape recognition with this activity.
PM: Train Table Snowstorm Snow in summer? I know it sounds crazy, but some cotton ball snow around a trainset is fun all year round! This works with a train table or just setting up a trainset on the coffee table or even the floor for some imaginative play.
