Pinterest Hidden Image

These fun and easy transportation crafts for preschoolers are a perfect way for small children to learn about the different vehicles. No matter what vehicle goes zooming by, or flying high, kids are curious about how they work. Whether you are travelling by air, road, or train, transportation crafts will keep the kids busy throughout the trip.

Why Preschool is Important

Preschool is a great way to prepare your child for kindergarten. They usually join a preschool around the age of 2.5 and continue until they begin kindergarten. It’s about learning and having fun without mommy or daddy watching over them. In preschool, children will develop social skills being around other children and adults. They will learn how to listen and cooperate through teachable moments during the day.

While there may be a fee for preschool, you can look into Early Childhood Centres that are free and often you can find them at local schools.

Throughout the day children will be doing many different crafts and activities like these transport themed activities for preschool. By doing these types of activities, kids will improve their hand and eye coordination as well as get to cut and glue with minimal help from an adult.

Transportation activities for preschoolers

Do your kids have a favourite vehicle? Whether it be a plane, boat, car, truck, or bicycle, you will find a printable below that will be the one for your child.

There are a few different ways to complete this activity once you have printed off the transport vehicle of your choice (or print them all for more crafting time). You can start by printing off on regular printer paper or card stock paper then cut out each piece. If you used card stock, then you can go ahead and glue the pieces together. You don’t want to glue the printer paper together as it won’t really hold up in the hands of your preschooler. Find a cardboard box or perhaps a paper plate and trace each piece onto it. Now you can cut out the transportation craft and glue it all together. Once the vehicles are all put together and the glue is dry, add a bit of colour with crayons, colour pencils, or markers.

Transportation Themed Birthday Party

What better way to celebrate a birthday than with these transportation printables. They will make the perfect decorations. Head to your local party store where you will be able to find some additional party supplies to make the birthday a hit. You can look for plates, napkins, and cups that have vehicle themes on them. Since cutlery usually just comes in particular colours, find the ones that best match your theme.
