Construction Site Sensory Activity: Math and Reading

Few things excite my boys quite like getting to see a real-live construction site! They are lovers of all things rocks, dirt, and TRUCKS! So I decided to help them create their very own Construction Site. Yes, one for each of them, and they were big fans!

All we needed to create our constructions sites were:

  • a few trucks (I found these little cuties at a yard sale, but you can grab them here on Amazon Prime.)
  • a batch of rocks
  • and a plastic container (Any size will do! Go small – Go big – Whatever Works for you and your crew!)

So before, during, and after this Construction Site Sensory Activity, we read and read and read some more! 

This was also a perfect time to revisit one of our favorite activities from Bitty Beginnings:

I love that this math activity can be used to practice counting with any and all numbers from 1 to 20 but can also be extended to use with older kids for addition and subtraction practice. I am one happy mama when I’m able to include my preschooler and elementary kiddo in the same learning experience.
