Transportation Fun

Continuing with our transportation theme we made a little town with roads for Hailey to drive her cars on.

Hailey placed the roads how she wanted them and then she added some yellow chalk lines.  Then I helped her glue the roads where she wanted them.

She decided we should add some water- so we put some water under a couple roads.  Then we added some houses.

Hailey’s finished town. Once it is completely dry I am going to put contact paper over it so that she can drive her cars on it.

A few other things we did:

Hailey wrote the color words from the transportation pack from Homeschool Creations.

Hailey made a traffic light.

We did a little experiment to see what it would take to sink a “boat.”  I put water in a big mixing bowl, then used a rubbermaid container as the boat.  For each item on our list- containers of playdough, crayons, hearts and blocks- Hailey had to guess how many she thought it would take to sink the boat.  Then we tested to see how many it actually took.

The “boat.”

Testing to see how many blocks it would take to sink the boat.

Our results.

    I love these ideas! I am also a homeschooling mama, but to littler ones. They could still do a majority of these though – and they would love the “sink the boat” activity. Thanks for sharing!

    I’m stopping by from Share Your Best Sunday. Hope you have a great week 🙂

    I love her little town! I once got in trouble at my grandmother’s house when I was little for making tracks in her carpet. I needed one of these!

    What a nice job she did on her town. Bet my son wouldn’t like to make one too.

    I love that you put contact paper over the town. That would be really fun to play with!
