Sugar Aunts: Easy Shapes Salt Truck Craft

Easy Shapes Salt Truck Craft

We live in an area with cold winters and lots of snow.  With the wintery weather comes ice, salt, and snow plows.  We've been watching many salt trucks rumble down our road, scattering salt and plowing snow.  My kids love to see the salt truck come and every time the see one when we're out and about, they shout, "SNOW PLOW" from the back of the minivan.  We had to make an Easy Shapes Salt Truck craft to join our other Easy Shapes crafts.  

Kids will love to build this Salt Truck easy shapes craft.  My kids love to see that salt trucks plowing the winter roads!

We love crafting with card stock.  Its brightly colors make great crafting material and the thickness is perfect for new scissor users. 

Cut shapes as pictured above to build the salt truck craft.  

Snow Plow Puzzle Craft for Kids

This is a fun visual memory activity for kids.  You can build the salt truck with them and then deconstruct the truck.  Ask your child to recreate the truck from memory, using their mind's eye to recall the placement of the shapes.  This memory is visual memory and an important skill for copying work when handwriting.  Remembering the position of the shapes is part of visual discrimination, a skill needed when children need to remember subtle differences in a picture or written work.  Difficulty with visual discrimination will be apparent when a child has difficulty discerning between b, d, p, or q.

Kids love salt trucks and snow plows!  Make an easy shapes truck craft to work on visual memory and visual discrimination.
