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!)
My kids love books about trucks!
Some of our favorite Construction Site Books include:
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:
*As of recently, Bitty Beginnings shop is no longer available.*
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.

If your kids love exploring, I know they’ll love this Magnet Sensory Bin. It couldn’t be any easier to toss together! Check it out! For daily glimpses into our activities, follow along with my Instagram account. We are a homeschooling preschool and elementary and are always so excited to connect with other families!
