Preschool Transportation Theme ~ How to make a circle car
We have been doing a number of different transportation activities this week. Check out what we did with road maps and license plates. Today we are making adorable little circle cars for the kids to play with the 5 minute traffic light craft I recently shared.

Circles are one of the hardest shapes for preschoolers to master cutting. Since we were squeezing this activity in between a couple of kiddos naps, I precut all the pieces. Although, this would be a perfect activity for working on those all important scissor skills.
The kids taped popsicle sticks to the back of their circle cars and traffic lights. I have to say the puppet show the kids put on was hilarious. Kids imaginations are the best. After the brief puppet show, the kids took up to zooming around the house and back yard. Love it!
The kids had lots of fun playing with their adorable little circle cars, or “bubble cars” as they referred them as.
I love all the “beep, beep and zoom zoom” noises the kids made as they drove around the house. Although I have to say my favorite was the “screech and squealing” sounds that one kid made at every red light. He informed me that was what his dad’s car sounds like at a red light. Ha! Love it!
