Play City - FamilyEducation

Play City

by Trish Kuffner, author of The Preschooler's Busy Book

In this activity, you'll help your child build a play city large enough for her cars and trucks.


Materials

  • Markers
  • Large sheet of paper

Directions

  1. Using markers on a large sheet of paper, draw an imaginary city big enough for your child's cars and trucks.
  2. Be sure to include some landmarks familiar to your child: bank, grocery store, gas station, park, hospital, school, post office, train tracks, and so on.
  3. Tape the finished city to the floor so your child can travel around the city with her cars, trucks, dolls, and fire engines.
  4. For a more permanent city, use paints on strong cardboard or wood. Glue milk cartons or small boxes onto the map to make buildings.
  5. For a variation, make an imaginary airport or farm.
