It’s no secret my son loves cars and trucks (and pretty much all vehicles). So it should come as no surprise that his favorite books revolve around those things with wheels. I’ve been dreaming up vehicle-related craft ideas, most of which I’m not sure the 2 1/2 year-old is patient enough for (who has time to wait for things to dry?).
It was almost too easy to think of what we could do to bring this book alive.
We have literally read Making Tracks (Tonka) a thousand times — Woe to those who miss or change a word when reading it to the little guy.
Now we had used construction vehicles to mess around in Play-Doh before, but when I collected the trucks and cars with the deepest treads on their itty-bitty tires and suggested we make our own tracks, Monkey got excited. I mean, REAL excited.
How have you made a book “come to life” for your little ones?
