All aboard! Are you ready to take your child on a transportation adventure? Then head out on a Spot A Lot Vehicle Adventure where a package has to be delivered but the delivery truck broke down. My kids are like this with our delivery drivers since they are here almost daily delivering packages to our rural home. Since we run several businesses out of our home, online shopping is the BEST for homeschool deals, and are living rural, when things that we can purchase online and can save a day trip going hours to purchase, we do. Are you ready to help deliver the package? What mode of transportation will finally get the package delivered? Let’s go!
Before I get much further into this review and sensory I would like to say that I was given a free copy of the book to assist in this review by Parragon. For full details you can read my disclosures found HERE.
Spot A Lot Vehicle Adventure
This book is all about transportation with a fun and engaging look and find pages that are sure to please both young and older children. It instantly pulls children into the pages of the story with its colorful characters, rhyming words, and interactive prompts.
What I loved most about this book as a parent and teacher is how the book is presented to make children think outside the box and develop problem solving skills. Some of the look-and-find books can be very overwhelming to a young child since it can be daunting to find anything in the picture. This can lead to a disinterest in the book since they get disappointed that they cannot find the image within the picture. You could easily expand on the learning activity from this book by simply asking your child to count certain images or find other things that are not prompted in the storyline itself.
Head on an I Spy Discovery Bottle Adventure
The kids and I had so much fun reading Spot A Lot Vehicle Adventure that we wanted the fun to continue. I asked my kids to select their favorite scene from the storybook, which just so happened to end up being the farm scene. Now it was time for me to quickly whip up some I spy fun!
What will I need?
To make this I Spy Discovery Bottle you will need the following materials:
- An empty plastic bottle (I used an old cleaned out coffee creamer container)
- Shredded yellow construction paper (I actually picked mine up at an after Easter sale but this paper is similar to what I used.)
- Small plastic farm animals
Once you have gathered your supplies, the first step is to take your shredded yellow construction paper and put the desired amount inside the empty bottle. I wanted enough to make it look like hay at the farm, but not so much that the child would not be able to “spy” the farm animals inside of the bottle.
Then, simply drop the farm animals inside of the bottle, close the bottle up and give it a couple of shakes. The bottle is now ready for an I Spy learning adventure!
After a little bit of shaking, simply ask your child to either look for a specific animal and then have them call out “I spy a …”. If you have more than one particular farm animal inside of your bottle you could also add counting into this activity by having your child say “I spy 2 cows.” You can make the game as fun and simply as you want.
Hopefully you and your children or students can have as much fun as we did going on this I spy adventure inspired by the storybook Spot A Lot Vehicle Adventure by Parragon Books.
