(assembly of the craft).
upper portion of the activity worksheet is a foldable flash card, the lower portion is
a craft to trace, color and assemble.
Printing Tips: This activity worksheet will be more

add interest, print on pastel colors.

print one for display and for instruction. Distribute only the
upper portion (flash card and tracer as one piece).
Tell the children they are going to
play different games with a van theme. They need to listen and
follow instructions for the game.
2. Game 1 - Trace and Say the Letter - Assemble the Flash
*Trace the large dotted letter (left) and sound out the word van and
point to the image (right side).
*Have the children trace the dotted letter with their finger
first. Instruct to trace with color pencil or crayon.
*Color the van image on the right.
*Instruct children (or help) fold on the center line and apply
glue. One side of the card will show the tracer and the other
side the van picture.

Craft - Trace, Cut and Assemble a Car or Van
The lower part of the worksheet is an easy craft that will provide
opportunities to trace, cut (scissor skills) and creativity in
coloring, decorating and assembly (small motor skills).
Distribute the van craft portion:
1. Instruct the children to trace along the dotted
lines of the different pieces in their favorite colors. Now the
children can color, fill and decorate the pieces
Once the pieces are traced and colored, instruct the children to cut
out the pieces.

image in the flash card. The wheels can be attached with a
large fastener, so these can turn around (Ages 3+ and older only).
