Know a child that loves monster trucks? Well, get your motor revving!
It’s time to motor on to letter “M” in our vehicle alphabet series! “M” Is for monster truck!
What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you think of monster trucks?
Learning Activities with Trucks
I used a large sheet of brown packing paper we had from one of the packages that came in the mail.
At the top I wrote “Monster Truck.” Then I added 2 preschool learning activities to it.
For one of the activities I drew some large circles and wrote numbers on each of them.
The preschooler counted out the correct number of monster trucks to get stuck in each of the “mud” circles.
For the second activity on the monster truck learning activities sheet I had written the colors: red, blue, and green.
We practiced writing the letter “M” on our dry-erase board, and then my number-loving preschooler decided to count all of his monster trucks!
It was good practice for them both, having to sort through the number cards and determine what the number 21 looked like verses a 23. (He has quite a few monster trucks!)
Monster Truck Craft
Then it was time for a monster truck craft.
We hit the recycling bin and the kids had fun creating their own monster truck rally courses.
Cardboard tubes, secured to the kitchen floor with tape, made fun “trees” to roll over.
It was a fun monster truck STEM activity that would be perfect for kids of all ages.
We’ve been having fun with our preschool learning activities with vehicles. These monster truck activities have been some of our favorites.
