Who doesn’t love a road trip? We gave you a planner for one a few weeks ago – and today we have an activity for the car instead in our TIme to Pee club. This is a simple, three pager for you, with cutting activities for toddlers with a bit of a road trip theme for them. Something for them to do on a road trip stop, or a few days before you head off to build the anticipation for them. You must be a member of the Time to Pee Club to download this one – it is our weekly exclusive freebie for those of you in the club.
This consists of a few pages to practise cutting activities; which are a really important part of toddlers and younger kids learning their fine motor skills. Do make sure you use safety scissors and supervise what they are doing of course.
Cutting activities for toddlers – what do you get?
The workbook includes three sheets with various different pictures and shaped outline within them:
The first page is the header, followed by a page containing:
- An oblong – water bottle,
- Four point star – map,
- Triangle – mobile phone,
- Pentagon – products for your wash bag ,
- Five point star – flip flops, and
- Heart – SatNav.
The outlines are clear around the items, so very easy for you toddlers to cut them out.
The final two pages cover more road trip items including:
- Oval – sunglasses,
- Hexagon – hat,
- Square – first aid kit,
- Circle – headrest,
- Five point star – Linen being carried,
- Pentagon – eyemask
- Triangle – battery,
- Oblong – envelope,
- Heart – headphones,
- Oval – blanket,
- Pentagon – sweets, and
- Square – box of stuff.
You can get your toddlers to short the shapes into the same groups once they are cut out, and count the sides to bring more maths into the activity.
Why not also spot things around the rooms you are in with the same number of sides as some of the shapes that you have cut out?
This is a charming activity for the kids both at home, and in a preschool / kindergarten setting, so we really hope that you enjoy this freebie from us today.
