On the Go with #TBCCrafters

Say it Rah-shay By Oct 09, 2014 1 Comment

Storytime was all abut things that go and I wanted to do something to use the scores of plastic caps people have donated to the library to create an easy to make vehicle craft!

This was the result:


Easy vehicle craft!


To create the cars we used these materials:

Not pictured, a screwdriver which is ADULT USE ONLY!

These materials are things we had in the library and repurposed.


Cut the construction paper into shapes:

trucks 007


And make the shapes into the vehicle of your choice (we made trucks) and use glue or tape to keep them together.

trucks 009


Use a screwdriver to make holes in the tops to add the fasteners.

This step is for ADULTS ONLY!

Attach to your paper and you can decorate as you’d like.

This craft was inspired by the books:

  • The Seals on the Bus by Lenny Hort
  • Brownie and Pearl Take a Spin by Cynthia Rylant and Brian Biggs
  • Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus by Mo Willems
  • Sheep on a Jeep by Nancy Shaw
