t is for transportation

oh, how i wish model magic was more affordable!  since it isn’t, our friday class was the group to sculpt transportation.

we named the colors, counted together as i cut them apart (since that couldn’t be done ahead of time in fear of it hardening), then gave each child a plate of pieces.  there were toothpicks and googly eyes (so our transportation vehicles might look like the ones in richard scarry books!)

i didn’t sense frustration as i watched them sculpt, mimic each other, or go new directions.

i wish i had recorded the names of their transportation vehicles.  i know there were ships, boats, cars, trucks, vans, airplanes, rockets, trains…and some creatively named vehicles!

One thought on “t is for transportation

    These are just adorable. I have never thought of anything like this. It’s so ironic too, because we have the big Richard Scary book of transportation that I use. I will say I am very sad that the last two years time has not allowed our transportation and I have NO idea why. We were always lucky enough to visit an airport too–the children LOVE this trip.
