Unfortunately, the mud proves too much for him and he ends up getting stuck.

But, it’s not a problem as those friends he made are there to help him out as all good friends do.

We love this book for the message of friends, the truck noises and animal noises which our kids loved to follow along and copy.

Farm Activities for Preschoolers Featuring The Little Blue Truck

Each week, here on the Virtual Book Club for Kids we try and find 5 simple and easy to do activities that focus on playing, learning and creating.

We set them out under the headings and you can pick and choose however many you want to do.

Some of our members follow our suggested structure to the week (see the image below) whereas others host a Book Club Play Date which works really well too.

In the comments let us know how you structure your Virtual Book Club for Kids as we would love to know!

Sensory Farm Themed Activity for Preschoolers

After the truck getting so muddy in the story our sensory play activity for this week is Washing Farm Animals.

You can always use a rice sensory bin as well for the week check out the idea we suggested for our Little Red Hen Theme Last Year (link at the bottom)

Farm Themed Language Activity

Storytelling is such an important part of the process of learning to read and write. That this week instead of a true alphabet or letter activity we have a set of Farm Story Stones to make.

Use these story stones to retell the Little Blue Truck and make up your own story.

Sorting Farm Animals Inspired by the Little Blue Truck for Math

For the math activity this week we are sorting animals.

Grab your toys animals and then get sorting.

Farm Themed Edible Science

This week’s recipe/cooking activity combines science and food. We’re making butter.

This is such a fun science experiment that you can then use. Why not check out the Bread Recipe we shared last year on our Little Red Hen Farm Week that is ideal for kids to make.

Farm Animal Craft for Preschoolers

Our art and craft this week is to make a paper plate cow.

Paper plates are great to use as a craft material with kids and this cow is fun to make and then play with. Why not cut the eyes out and turn it into a mask instead.
