The Wheels on the Tractor with a Stretchy Band

 

 

Do you have a little boy in your life that loves tractors?  I do!

I actually made this video over a year ago, and due to a blooper in the middle that I intended to edit, I hadn’t shared it yet. 

Well, a year has passed, and the blooper seems more funny than one of those embarrassing mom moments.

Get ready for some great book suggestions and another fun song to use with the stretchy band.

The Song

One of my favorite things to do is take a well known song and create new lyrics to it. This is called a “piggyback” song.  Here I took “Wheels on the Bus” and we created a new version of driving our tractor. 

You can see how the kids helped out and how I struggled with getting it “right.” 

Plus the blooper?  Well, we all need a good laugh!

I also have fun taking the kids play barn, tractors, and animals out in the yard and set up miniature play area for them.  Making hay bales is a fun addition.

Added bonus:  use your toy tractors to create wheel art. Drive your tractors through some paint and make tracks!

Tractor Book Finds

I found a great book from the local library called “Tractor Mac Arrives at the Farm” for our tractor themed circle time.

We then sang Old McDonald Had a Farm using the white board with magnet visuals I created almost 20 years ago!

Recently Morgan Sparks introduced me to Barefoot Books and their great books and other educational resources.

I was excited to find this book and puzzles to give to our son for his fourth birthday.   (affiliate links included)
