Fun Day Monday

Hello and Happy Monday to you all, I can’t believe that another week has passed and we’re back at Monday again!

We’ve been having a great time in my childminding service all week sharing our book of the week which was, “Driving My Tractor” and doing lots of tractor and farm related activities.

If you don’t have a copy of the book you can always download the animated version from You Tube ….. we had a watch of this and it really got the children dancing and trying to sing along…. it amazes me how quickly they can pick up the words to songs and stories already.

To accompany our dancing and singing fun we also made some shape pictures of tractors.

If you want to have a go you will need the following:

  • Coloured card or paper
  • Piece of white A4 card or paper
  • Scissors
  • Glue stick

and this is what you do:

  • Cut out 1 x large square, 1 x smaller square, 2 x large circles, 3 x medium circles, 2 x small circles, 1 x large rectangle, 1 x oval, 2 x small triangles
  • Sit with your little one and show them the shapes and give them the glue stick (if you want to extend this activity, you can talk about the shapes and their colour)
  • Get your little one to glue the shapes onto the white piece of card or paper making up a tractor shape with a trailer that has a pig in it

(see the picture below to see where the pieces go – you will notice that I have drawn in a line between the tractor and the the trailer to connect the two!)

If you want to have a go at this activity and want a template for the shapes just email me at: and I’ll send you the one that I made.

Have fun!
