10 Great Car Crafts and Activities for Preschoolers
Get your preschooler ready to learn about car safety. Teaching about car safety should start early so that good habits become second nature as they grow. The crafts and activities we have supplied below are fun and help reinforce the experience. You might also want to explore a website called Live Youth Strong that has a blueprint for individuals or groups geared to different ages working together or independently.
Youth Strong has a program they will love. Your little ones can earn a car safety patch ( go back and link when we have a URL) that they can proudly display on a tote or hat. Getting involved in the program can be a one time activity or a longer commitment to a cause that you and your family or organization feel dedicated to.
