All Things Truck!

The next vehicle in our transportation series is trucks!! F has become obsessed with trucks of every kind, so this week we looked at garbage trucks, fire trucks, delivery trucks and ice cream trucks. Note – I’ve not featured dump trucks this week as they are part of our construction site vehicle unit!

Garbage truck craft
I downloaded a picture of a garbage truck from and F painted it blue.

Then I cut out the truck image. I taped some clear contact paper (sticky side up) onto some construction paper, and placed the truck image in the center. I’ll be honest, and say that this part wasn’t as easy as expected – lots of stickiness going on and the construction paper didn’t lie flat in the end. Anyway, I collected lots of little bits of trash/rubbish/garbage: shredded paper, bottle tops, pieces of straw, packing foam peanuts, kitchen foil balls, plastic wrappers etc.

Then we made a collage around the garbage truck!

Truck Activities

Garbage Truck Song
I found a really cute garbage truck song online from Nancy Stewart. I played it to F and I did a selection of the suggested accompanying actions. He really enjoyed it – AND the next 12 times that I got asked to play it!

Trucks: Smallest to Biggest
This is the kind of activity that can be done with almost anything! I collected all the toy trucks and I prompted F to arrange them from smallest to biggest.

He needed some help as this is a new concept for him, but we got there in the end!
