3D Paper Transport Craft
Included are ten high quality templates
• London Bus
• Firetruck / Fire Engine
• Police car
• Rocket (or as my students insist on calling it a Super Jet Rocket Space Car !)
• Steam train
Preparation is simply printing off a number of templates for the class, letting students choose which one is best.
Model how to make any one of them and students will be able to then independently make any vehicle they choose.
Materials per student
Car, Bus and Train template.
x2 Wheels per vehicle. A toilet roll cut into strips or a strip of craft paper rolled up twice and stapled. Then cut half way through the centre to make a slot that will support the vehicle.
Cover tables with plastic sheets or large bin bags.
Wet wipes - less messy for the school as a whole than having the students running back and forth between the class and bathroom every time they change inkpads.
The children should have no need to leave their seats during the craft.
Songs: The Ride It Song by The Magic Crayons. Lyrics are Train, Car, Bus, Bicycle, Airplane.
Print the template onto thick A4 paper. When folded in half it should be rigid.
Colour the Train. We used inkpads. Crayons, glitter, pencils etc are just as suitable.
Turn over, glue, fold in half.
Cut out the Train.
Add 2 wheels.
As with all crafts, make one yourself first before presenting it to the class.
Allow time after the craft has been made for the children to play with their new toys.
