Away We Go! Shapes and Transportation Activities

Yay! I'm super excited to have Away We Go! preschool activities
and party printables up on my
website.  Enjoy Away We Go! story-time with
your little ones, followed by fun shapes and transportation projects.

Check out the coloring, cut and paste, counting, and matching activities.

Print the activities and party printables to your heart's content.
If you have an Away We Go! celebration,  please do share!
Great fun for birthdays, baby showers, transportation, and preschool events.

How about snack time?!  Here's a template I created 
for a tasty shape-sorting activity.
Be sure to lay down wax paper over the printable before beginning.

Strawberries make good heart shapes, and these stars are baby cereal puffs.
I also spotted some star-shaped crackers at the grocery store.

These shapely fruit rockets were a big hit with my kids!

Don't forget the crafts!  Candy airplanes are cute, and very easy to make.
The shapes highlighted here are circles, rectangles, and squares.

A cool summer craft that really floats!
Using foam sheets, cut out a 2 3/4" x 4" rectangle, and a triangle sail.
Cut 7 slits, each a centimeter apart, as seen in the photo.
Be careful not to cut too close to the edge.  Have your little sailors weave
three crafts sticks (4 3/8" long), and attach the triangle sail.

Let kids be creative, gluing shapes together to make colorful, 
shapely transportation vehicles.  Here are samples of 
a spaceship, ice cream truck, and train.

I'm reposting the Away We Go! treats.
Check out my Book Launch Celebration blog post for details.
Have a shapetastic time reading Away We Go! with the kiddos, 
and getting creative with shapes and transportation!

  6. Chieu! You are an artistic genius at keeping kids focused! Query: do you have anything for Pentagon theme?

  10. I consider you’ve created some genuinely exciting points. Not too most people would in reality consider about this the way you simply did. I’m really impressed that there’s a lot about this topic that’s been uncovered and you also did it so tremendously, with a lot class.
