Train Activities

Name Trains

{Literacy}
Children glue squares with the letters of their name onto a strip of construction paper to make a name “train”. We add a paper engine and draw on the wheels.

Train Name

Scissor Skills

{Fine Motor Skills}
Children pretend the scissors are a train, cutting along the railroad tracks (straight, curved & jagged lines). They stop when they come to the animal sticker.

Cutting Skills

Train Patterns

{Math}
Children work in pairs, each choosing one color of the Unifix cubes to work with. The children make an AB pattern: one child adding one color and the other adding the next color, taking turns adding to the train.

Airplane Activities

Jet Pilot

{Large Motor}
Children fly around the room when their first initial is called.

Craft Stick Airplanes

{Art}
Children use craft sticks and colored masking tape to create airplanes.

Airplane Counting

{Math}
Each month, we kept track of how many airplanes flew over our playground while we were outside. Whenever the children saw airplanes outside, we would keep a count in our heads (usually no more than 3 flew over). Then when we went inside, we would add that many airplanes to our chart. The children were often spotted at the chart counting how many we had seen so far.

Parachutes

{Science}
Make parachutes with a 14-inch (approx.) square from a plastic trash bag, tape a 16-inch (approx.) string to each corner with masking tape, and tie all four pieces of string to a 3/4-inch metal washer. This is not easy for children to do. You could make this with each child, or send home the materials and directions for a home activity. Either way children will need individual help. I also made a larger parachute using a whole trash bag tied on four sides to a stuffed animal. The kids had fun dropping this from the classroom loft. (Children are exploring properties of air.)

Car and Truck Activities

Red Light, Green Light

{Large Motor}
When green light is on, children roll a car around on the floor. When they see the red light, the cars should stop.

Tire Tracks

{Art}
Children dip the tires of toy cars in paint and roll it across their paper to make tire tracks. Oriental Trading also has some car stamps that can be used for this activity. (Item number IN-56/2906)

Truck Track Prints

Play Dough Tire Tracks

{Fine Motor Skills}
Children flatten out play dough and roll toy cars and trucks on it to make tire tracks.

Tire Tracks

Letter Roads

{Literacy}
We use large foam letters (ours came from Lakeshore). Children drive over the shapes of the letters with mini toy cars.

Letter Roads

Ramps & Cars

{Math}
The children bring a small car or truck to school for this experiment. We test the cars to see how well they roll on a ramp covered with various materials. We used aluminum foil,

Transportation Theme for Preschool

Transportation Theme Activities for Preschool


A preschool transportation theme is a traditional topic in most preschools but why?

Preschoolers love activities that include playing with all types of transportation theme items including vehicles such as cars, trucks, airplanes and more.

This topic is part of their everyday lives.

They drive or walk to school, have seen or ridden on a bus or taken an airplane to go on vacation.

Transportation Preschool Theme

This natural interest in transportation is something they experience in their lives brings life to the theme and your preschool classroom.

Preschool children learn through play.

Providing hands-on activities in all of the Interest Learning Centers in your classroom with a theme in mind will draw them in to play and learn!

This Transporation Theme page is filled with preschool activities and ideas for all areas of your classroom.

Let the Transportation Theme planning begin!

You can either scroll down through this page to see all of the preschool activities for your transportation theme or click the link below to go to specific preschool activity types you are looking for.

Transportation Theme Art

Traffic Lights for a Preschool Transportation Theme

Traffic Lights

Materials Needed: Cardboard egg cartons (in sections of 3); craft sticks; paint; clay

Provide red, yellow and green paint. Place craft stick into bottom. Once painted, place stick into a piece of clay as a base. These are great to use with cars, trucks etc. or in the block area!

Monster Trucks!  Thank you Lisa B. for this idea!

Monster trucks! My children can’t get enough of reading about them and playing with them. 
We did an art activity with paint. They drove the trucks through the paint onto the paper. They loved it! 

Also, they like to drive the trucks through shaving cream mixed with brown paint! 
I haven’t done this yet, but, I thought if I used a Monster truck template, I could have one of each color. They could count them also!

Hot Air Balloons

Materials Needed: Round balloons, watered down glue (or other paper mache recipe you like), strips of newspaper, colored tissue paper, yarn, colored paper or strawberry baskets

Help children (if needed) to cover balloon with at least one layer of newspaper. It may be easier if you encourage them to completely “paint” the balloon with the glue or mache liquid and then cover with strips of news paper and then “paint” over the newspaper.

(Preschoolers tend to give up quickly when they have to pick newspaper out of a tray of glue and water. It is a lot of fine motor activity for them all at once.). After a layer is covering balloon, encourage them to place colored tissue paper over the newspaper and re”paint” with glue.

Let dry for several days. Pop balloons (favorite part in our classroom!). Hole punch a hole on each side of the opening of balloon shape. Using yarn, Tie strawberry baskets onto balloon shape (or have children paint paper to make their own baskets and tie them on).

Extension: Hang Hot Air Balloons
