Extension Ideas:

  • Use various different types of vehicles to get different tire tracks. Have children try to match the vehicle to the tire tracks (a fun CSI kind of detective activity)
  • Write letters, numbers, or sight words on the piece of paper. Then tell your child to drive the blue hotwheel to the letter A (or word “is”, number 5). This is great for reinforcing lots of concepts while making a fun, colorful project too!
