I was supposed to finish up our transportation unit last week but with me being sick I didn't get the chance. So I'm here with it today :)
Just in case you missed the first activities, you should take a minute to check out the stoplights and submarines we made!
So this last project was really fun but it did take some time to get made and I had to do the majority of the work. You don't need anything special, I was able to make the game with things I already had here in the house. The only additional thing I'm going to do is take it & get it laminated so it hopefully will last longer :)
And just so I'm honest with y'all because I do not have an artistic bone in my body ~ I used a police car wooden puzzle piece to trace to make this game. And then I used a large spice shaker to trace to make the wheels. We each have our own gifts and art is not one of mine ;)
construction paper ~ 1 white sheet, strip of black to make road, color of choice for car
foam sheets in multiple colors ~ or you could just use multiple colors of construction or cardstock paper
crayons to decorate background (optional)
LETS CREATE THE CAR:
Cut a simple car shape (do not include tires) out of the construction paper & glue it to the white piece of paper, about mid page. Directly below the car, glue the black strip of construction paper for the road ~ you can use a white crayon to add in the lane markers if you want. Add any other fun elements to the background picture that you want ~ I simply added a sun to the corner
LETS CREATE THE WHEELS:
On the foam sheets, trace circles to become the tires. Again I used a large spice shaker for this. Depending on how you want to do the game will determine how many circles you need. I made a set of all upper-case letters & lower-case letters so I needed a bunch of circles. Use the black marker to write your letters.
The way I made the game for Princess P to play was for her to match the upper-case letter to the lower-case letter like in the picture. Since she is only 2, I didn't want to make it overly difficult so I also made the colors match for the letters, like in the picture both C's are on red foam circles.
