I’ve yet to meet a toddler who doesn’t love playing with cars and trucks and these car and truck themed toddler activities are definitely worth saving!
Car and Truck Themed Toddler Activites
We love these car and truck activities – perfect for one, two and three year olds. Don’t be fooled thinking these activites are ‘boy activities’ – girls love cars and trucks as much as anyone. When I’ve worked in early learning environments the cars and trucks one of the most popular play areas (in close competition with the dress ups and pretend play areas). One of my favorite items for playing wiht cars and trucks is a playmat like this one. It makes it so easy to set up – get the playmat, get your box of cars and trucks and you’re ready to go!
I like the mat above as you can pull it apart for easy storage, and because it’s foam it’s easy to wipe down if anything spills on it. You can get this one HERE on Amazon.
I also like to always link our toddler activities to a great toddler book (I can’t help it – it’s the teacher in me coming out!). For this car and truck theme I couldn’t choose my favorite so decided to share my two favorites – That’s Not My Car (available HERE on Amazon) and That’s Not My Truck (available HERE). I really love the whole range of these touchy feely books and they are perfect for younger toddlers.
