My Life of Travels and Adventures: Tot School - Car & Truck Theme

Tot School - Car & Truck Theme

29 January 2014

See all of my Tot School Lessons Here
See all of my preschool posts Here.

Two weekends ago, we went on our first family vacation.  We headed loaded up the car and drove around Lake Erie to Detroit, Mi.  I planned this weekend trip to the Detroit Auto Show for Neil as part of his birthday present.  So, Reid and I spent the week before talking all things cars &trucks.   With a two year old, this is pretty much everyday too. 
Again, I kept our Sensory Bin simple.  

For the Tot Trays:
Supplies: Car shaped cutout (Thanks to Neil), Paint and Paint Brushes
Supplies: Fabric and Matchbox Cars
Supplies: Little People Cars, Trucks, Planes and Trains Book
These little people books are great.  Reid loves it when I ask him to find the truck, the car, the plane, etc on each page.  Such an easy idea for a scavenger hunt too. 
Apparently, roads around here do not need lines and when they do Reid likes to drive on the line not in between.  Who knew?
Supplies: Roadways from previous Tot Tray and Matchbox Cars
Reid's favorite part of the cars are the wheels so stamping some black circles and calling them wheels was a big hit. 
I pretty much have each of these books memorizes.  Beep, beep, beep!
