Read – Books can take you anywhere! Try this transportation themed book list, opens a new window.

Sing – Singing together is fun! Try changing the words to popular tunes like “The Wheels on the Bus.” What other vehicles could you sing about? Try “…the wheels on the train go clickety-clack…” or “…the bell on the bike goes ding, ding, ding...”

Play – Play “I Spy” while you are traveling from here to there. What can you spy out the window, or in your vehicle? Have your child find different shapes or colors. Use descriptive language like “small, round, or shiny.” Help your child take turns by guessing what they spy. This game is a great way to build vocabulary and social skills.
