Car Park Activity – Fun Preschool Educational Craft

CAR PARKING LOT. What’s so interesting about it? Well it does fascinate my 2 year old a lot (just like every other thing around him)!!

These days I don’t blame my luck for having to walk down all the way to the end of the aisle to find my car in the crowded parking lot! Because, my preschooler finds it fun counting the cars, pointing it’s color and guessing the model :)

I was teaching him how the cars are parked in the space between the 2 solid lines ( sometimes yellow, sometimes white) and he gasped to see the vehicles parked within their slot! Back home I thought why not make a parking lot for his cars! We had fun making this simple educational craft.

Every night before going to bed, we have the clean up time. Yes, we sing the famous “clean up” song as we clear all the toys. These days our LO makes sure that he places his cars in their parking space before he hits the bed :)

Must admit: The parking lot doesn’t have space for all his motor friends, but small/tiny ones do get a space here!

Materials used:

  • black construction paper/foam sheet
  • white/yellow paper (for the lines)
  • glue
  • scissors

I cut the strips and Skandha glued them to the foam sheet.

Note: Be cautious while using the scissors. Use age appropriate scissors for your kids

You can also try: Vary the width of the slots depending on the size of cars/trucks that you kid has. It would also turn as “puzzle” -  finding out the right parking space for the right car.
