Working on a letter post has never been so exciting! 🙂 For the 31 Days of ABC hosted by All Done Monkey this year I chose the letter “T”.
My child loves everything and anything trucks! I even created a free printable Spanish activity for his favorite book: Demolición, and he also has his very own monster truck sensory bin.
Now, this year for Halloween he wants to be a construction worker! He says that when he gets older that’s what he wants to be one so he can drive all of the trucks. Besides the goggles, vest, hard hat, and tools that he already has he needed a truck. So I made a construction dump truck out of a large box, and used duct tape (instead of paint) to make it. I’m a very busy mom, I work full-time, and my free time well it really isn’t free! I thought of using tempera paint but that was going to be messy, and I needed to wait for it to dry. The spray paint didn’t work out as I hoped for. So, I ventured using the duct tape. I must say it was perfect!
In addition to playing with his dump truck, we’ve also been reading up on bilingual and English/Spanish children’s books about trucks. These are our favorites:
|Roadwork (English Edition)|
|Construir Una Carretera (Spanish Edition)|
|Demolicion (Spanish Edition)|
|Camiones Amigos/Truck Buddies (Bilingual Edition)|
|Carrera en la carretera/Road Race (Camiones Amigos/Truck Buddies) (Bilingual Edition)|
|Líos en la Nieve/Snow Trouble (Camiones Amigos/Truck Buddies) (Multilingual Edition)|
|Líos en el Lodo/Mud Mess (Camiones Amigos/Truck Buddies) (Multilingual Edition)|
