Transportation Crafts and Activities for Kids

I'm joining in with some talented blogging friends this year for a Share-It Saturday series.  Each week, we'll be bringing you collections of our favorite crafts and activities from our favorite bloggers.

The past two weeks at Daycare have been devoted to our Transportation Theme.  In addition to reading lots of Transportation Books, we have been crafting and learning with cars, planes, boats, and trains.  Here are some of our favorite Transportation crafts and activities. Be sure to save this page and check back as we add more of our transportation activities.

This Stop Light Craft incorporates scissor skills and fine-motor development with tearing.  It even includes a cute poem for preschoolers to help them remember what each color means.
Our Shape Vehicles were great for reinforcing shapes and letting kids create their own modes of transportation.

We revisited an old activity and had a great time with our Shaving Cream Sensory Car Wash. The little ones loved driving their cars through the shaving cream and then washing them off in soapy water.

Bubble Wrap Transportation Painting combined two of our favorite things: CARS and Bubble Wrap.  This was also a less-messy (but not quite "mess-free") painting experience for my toddlers.

The kids loved using these Pool Noodle Boats in our water table.  They provided their own "wind" to create ocean currents and make their boats travel.

Our Clothespin Airplanes sparked a whole afternoon of pretend play as the kids zoomed them around inside and outside!

We practiced our names with Name Trains and some Letter Cruising.

We explored patterns with this free Transportation Printable and had lots of fun with these Counting Transportation Printables.

We practiced our letters with this ABC Parking Lot.
We did some more shape and scissor practice with this sailboat craft from FSPDT.
