Printable transportation activities

Your little one will practice number, letter, and line tracing using fun transportation cut outs.  “Driving” a bus around letter “T” is much more fun than just using your finger!  He or she will also sort shapes, colors, and items by size.  Matching and pattern activities will help with visual memory.  Kids will love using “things that go” in the sensory bins!   You’ll find lots of ideas on how to make the bins using inexpensive items. 

The importance of learning activities for 2 to 4 year olds

During the age of 2-3 children are developing so much! The way that kids this age learn is through play.  Playing is so important because it lays the foundation for learning, exploring, solving problems, and starting to understand the world around you.  By imitating what they see they are using creativity and learning how to interact with others. 

Don’t just take my word for it- listen to the experts:  “Play is how children learn,” says Dr. Tiff Jumaily, a pediatrician at Integrative Pediatrics and Medicine Studio City in Los Angeles.  What better way to learn than with fun and colorful products focused on things that a child loves:  cars, trucks, buses, trains, and boats!  

Learning activities help cognitive development by reinforcing memory and understanding cause and effect. Young kids use their senses to help them understand how things fit together in the world.  Hands on activities are so important during this time.  

Toddlers and preschoolers’ language development is constantly growing.  At the age of 2, they may use 2-3 word sentences.  Then at age 3, they will begin using sentences of 3-5 and more words.  This is why it’s crucial to talk to your child, tell them what they are doing, feeling, seeing, tasting, hearing, and touching.  Not only are they learning from the activity, they are also learning the vocabulary they need to communicate.  

The best news is that you don’t have to recreate the wheel!  Everything you need to help with those vital learning skills can be found in my Transportation Unit.  Remember, you’ll have access to lesson plans to easily guide you on how to use each activity.  Printable transportation activities that are just the right size for those toddler size hands and ideas on making your own transportation themed sensory bins.
