Trace a Truck

Draw around truckThis is a great activity for improving crayon/pen control while drawing in a new and fun way.

What you need:

  • Crayons or pens
  • Some toy trucks or cars
  • White paper

Ask your child to pick the car they would like to use for their picture. Next, lay the car flat against the paper and ask your child to draw around the truck. You can hold the car in place or attach it to the page with a bit of blue tack. Once your child has traced the outline of the car remove the toy and draw some windows, a road or other background elements.

Extension ideas: 

Why not draw around different sized and coloured toy cars? Ask your child what colour car they would like to trace next. Do they want to trace the big car or the small car?
