Inside: Do you have a toy car or truck fan in your house? I definitely do. Whenever I incorporate cars into an activity my little car fan is always 110% on board to play. These amazing toy car activities for toddlers and preschoolers are sure to keep your little truck-lover happy, entertained and learning!
This amazing list of toy car activities is broke into 4 sections:
The first section is Learning Activities using toy cars. Here you’ll find activities to help your toddler and preschooler learning letters, numbers, colours and shapes.
The second is Arts & Crafts Toy Activities using toy cars. Here you’ll find painting ideas including mess free ideas and those using a slide!
The third section and my personal favorite is Sensory Play Ideas. Here you’ll get sensory bin ideas where cars are the main feature! From muddy race track, fizzing car wash, shaving cream and more.
The final section is the Boredom Busting Ideas. These are ideas you can pull out whenever you need a quick minute. Some are easier to set up than others but all are tons are tons of fun!
OK, moms and dads start your engines and zoom down this list to find new ways to keep your kid busy!
