Little Blue Truck Farm Animal Story Retelling

Share on Pinterest

My almost 2 year old loves the book The little blue truck, so much so she gets all excited when I pull it out for reading. The pictures are vivid, the story line is full of moo and baa, whats not to love. That being said my 7 year old also loves the story simply because of the sticky mud situation, so I think the book translates well during the ages.

Today we did a little activity based on the book. We retold the story with our little plastic farm animals.

Now I really wish I had the little blue truck for this activity, its been sitting in my wish list forever. I think it is time to purchase it since I have 2 of the little blue truck books already!

To do this activity you will need:

TIP: No blue truck or dump truck? Make a color copy from the book on cardstock and stick it onto a popsicle stick!

That’s it! Ok, I know this is a super simple activity but it is really enjoyable and gives the little ones a new dimension to reading this book. fun-extention-for-the-book-little-blue-truck

I went to attend something in the kitchen and when came back she was still playing! SCORE!pretend-play-with-book-inspiration
