TheTransportation Station

My son, George, and I studied transportation last week. We read several books including Things That Go and How Our Car Works. We also did numerous activities such as rolling toy cars in paint and painting tracks on paper, rolling cars down slides and homemade ramps and picking up passengers to take across the bathtub in George's tugboat. I thought I'd share one of our activities below.

George helped me tape together an old dryer sheet box. He decorated it with construction paper strips and colored it using markers. We then taped four muffin tins as the wheels and taped two circles as headlights. You could add more like taillights and windows, but our project maxed out the attention span of three-year-old George. He loved his little bus and is still playing with it this week.
