The next vehicle in our transportation series is all things tractor. I had to ask my husband whether it was the same thing as a digger, so this was a learning experience for me and my son!

Tractor Arts and Crafts
Painting and Colouring
F painted this tractor picture from his Fisher-Price Paint with Water book.
He also coloured in this picture of a tractor.
T is for Tractor
I love this idea that I saw on Totally Tots. I cut the pieces from craft foam and helped F assemble them. He immediately spotted two Ts, an L, and four Os!
See how we made tractor track prints!
You know me, I’m a sucker for papercraft projects! This one was from Kid Scraps and it looked way more complicated to make than it was in reality. For a freebie it’s incredibly detailed, although I think the construction is more suited to adults.
Pipe Cleaner Tractor
I found this cute idea on Craftyville, and decided to do my own version. I used pipe cleaners and a hot glue gun to keep it all together.
Farm Visit and Small World Play
Come and check out our farmtastic day!
I made this cute tractor snack for F using bread, mini pancakes, raisins and fruit Shredz.
Tremendous Tractors by Tony Mitton
This is a great book that includes lots of the tractor attachments (plow, harrow, seed drill, mower, bale fork) as well as combine harvesters. I learnt a lot from this book!
John Deere: Touch And Feel Tractor by DK Publishing
I wasn’t sure whether this was a “baby book” or not, but F rather liked it; with its spiky grass, shiny green baler, chunky ridged tires, rough gavel and sparkly lights.
