Themed learning is extremely useful when it comes to teaching kids about a particular subject. Why? Because focusing all games, activities, songs, arts, and crafts on one subject allow children to become familiar with it very quickly. The best part is that they’ll learn while having fun!
- Transportation Stencils
Once you’ve gone through the different means of transportation with your children, you should make stencils!
All you need is:
- thinned paint,
- and crayons.
Gather your materials and start by cutting transportation shapes from your cardboard. Include cars, planes, boats, etc. Then, place some tape, sticky side out, on the back of the shapes and stick them onto your paper. Next, let your children paint around the edges of the shapes. When they’re done, remove the cardboard and allow the paper to dry.
Once dry, get your children to decorate the means of transportation items with crayons! Also, ask them questions about what each transport type is, where they are found, etc.
- Make Your Own Tugboat
