Transportation Theme Preschool Activities

Do you have a kid who loves cars? These transportation theme preschool activities are fun for every kid! My daughter loves everything that moves, so she had a blast with these 4 transportation theme activities that use stickers. She loves peeling the backing and sticking them in place. (Which is also a great way to work on fine-motor skills.) And don’t miss the great printables at the end of the post for even more transportation activities!

Materials needed for these Transportation Theme Preschool Activities:

Transportation theme stickers | Card stock | Marker | Egg Carton | Square block or large die

We bought one big pack of transportation stickers and used them for all of these activities with lots left of to craft and play with. And if the kids don’t peel the backing you can use the stickers and activities more than once.

Sorting Stickers

We use a brand of eggs that comes in clear plastic cartons, so I put one small sticker inside each section of the carton and trimmed off the extra sections.

Then, I gave Shiloh a tray of stickers and she sorted them into the egg carton. This was new for her, but she had a lot of fun.

I love that this activity is self-checking, so she can do it independently or with the assistance of her sisters. (Since independent work is really a dream of mine for her… someday!)

We did the sorting first, so that we could have the stickers sorted for our next activity.

Transportation Sticker Graphing

I put one small sticker on each side of a small square block. Then I divided a piece of paper into 6 columns and put coordinating stickers at the bottom of the page, to create the graph.

Shiloh loved rolling the block. Her version of “rolling” included shaking the block in her hands and then finding the picture she wanted to roll and carefully placing that picture face-up on the table. I love her creativity!!

Then, she added a picture to the correct column on the graph.

Sorting Big/Small Stickers

For this activity, I drew a line down the middle of the page and wrote Big/Small. Then I added a sticker to match, so that she could have a visual idea of what we were doing.

She selected the stickers from a tray and tried to place them on the correct side. She does know what big and small mean, but this seemed to be a challenge for her because we used so many kinds of stickers.

The next time we repeat this activity, I may limit it to two forms of transportation until she masters the big/small concept.

Transportation Sticker Memory Game

I divided the page into 12 sections and placed 6 pairs of stickers in the boxes. Then, I cut the sections apart to create the memory cards.

How to play: With the cards face-down in a rectangle, the first player will turn over two cards. If they match, the child keeps the cards and tries for another match. If they don’t match, it is the next players turn. Play is finished when all the matches have been found. Winner has the most matches.

Limit the amount of cards for young learners by using 2-3 pairs to start and increasing the number of pairs as their skills improve.
