    Product Review by Play Inspired Mum: DIY Construction Trucks Look Book

    The local roadworks have become a huge part of our day. Miss 4 loves watching the construction machines working at extending a road near our home.

    To further extend her interest, we printed off and put together our own Construction Trucks Look Book.

    DIY Construction Trucks Look Book

    How we started out

    Before heading off for a walk to the roadworks, we spent some time learning about the trucks in our look book.

    We discussed
    βœ… Names of the trucks
    βœ… Jobs of the trucks
    βœ… Basic parts names

    With our book, we walked to the roadwork site and watched to see if we could spot any trucks from our book.

    Miss 4 loved watching the trucks and proudly matched a
    βœ… Front end loader
    βœ… Dump truck
    βœ… Crane

    Wheel Sorting 🚧

    Using coloured salt and black aquarium gravel, I partially hid the wheels from the β€˜Wheels Biggest to Smallest’ page.

    Miss 4 was asked to guess which were biggest and position them accordingly.

    Rock Counting 🚧

    In the same tray of coloured salt and gravel, I concealed the printable rocks under the salt.

    Using her fingers, Miss 4 needed to find them, counting as she went and placing them into the dump truck tray on the β€˜Count the Rocks’ page.

    βœ… Counted by correspondence
    βœ… Sorted by size
    βœ… Sorted by colour

    The printable rocks made for perfect additions to our construction themed small world set up. Teamed up with some little trucks, Miss 4 was completely absorbed in her own reenactment of the road works we watched earlier in the day.

    Puzzles 🚧

    Miss 4 did find β€˜building the digger’ challenging when given the pieces independently.

    Instead, to start with I completed part of the puzzle and she filled in the gaps. After swapping and changing the pieces a few times, her confidence grew and she can now complete the puzzle by memory.

    With incremental steps came resilience!

    Educational Benefits 🚧

    Our DIY Construction Trucks Look Book presented loads of learning opportunities.

    βœ… Fine motor skills
    βœ… Problem Solving
    βœ… Sequencing
    βœ… Events
    βœ… Sorting by Attributes
    βœ… Counting by correspondence
    βœ… Bilateral Coordination 
    βœ… Cause and Effect 
    βœ… Hand Eye Coordination
    βœ… Vocabulary Building
    βœ… Prepositional Language

    We both loved linking this look book to real events that are happening in our community.
