Are you ready to get your little kids on the road to learning? Here are five awesome transportation preschool monthly theme ideas that you’re not going to want to miss!
Explore roads, signs, maps, and bridges. Travel by land, air, and water. And of course learn all about public transportation. These fun crafts & activities are sure to get your preschoolers headed in the right direction.
One of our all-time favorite themes was Transportation Station. I mean, seriously! Little kids love cars and trucks and things that go. And this preschool monthly theme was for sure a great time.
We spent a month learning about all things on the go. We learned about some things we might encounter while we’re traveling and lots of ways to get to where we’re going. So many great topics to get little kids thinking!

A huge thanks to Experience Early Learning (formerly Mother Goose Time) for providing us with their Experience Preschool curriculum for free in exchange for sharing our honest and authentic stories resulting from our personal experiences. It’s been such a huge blessing to us! As always, my opinions on awesome stuff for little kids are 100% my own.
Keep in mind that all preschoolers do things in their own time and on their own terms. What one is ready for, another might not be. Please use your best mama judgement when planning activities for your little kids.
The topic for week one of our transportation preschool monthly theme was Down the Road and we learned about roads, signs, maps, and bridges.
We worked on our engineering skills and did a really cool DIY Tinker Toys Investigation Station for Little Kids. Do you remember playing with Tinker Toys when you were a kid?
We actually have a few sets of the newer ones, but there are still some of the old, wooden ones at the little guy’s grandma’s house. So much fun!
And let’s not forget about the Making Bridges Investigation Station for Preschoolers. Talk about a great way to work on some very important skills! we totally improvised, but what’s important is that we made it work for us.
Week two covered On Land, which meant learning about cars, trucks, and even bikes.
This was probably the week that was the most relatable. Most little kids have experienced these particular modes of transportation and can tell you a little bit about each of them. I know for sure that the little guy has.
We spent lots of time during week three exploring transportation By Air & Water.
We did a fun Moving Water Sensory Activity for Preschoolers and learned about how we can make water move and, for that matter, what happens to objects in water when it’s moving.
Oh, and a while back I found a fun series called the Just Ask series from when I was a little kid and I ordered every book that I could get my hands on. This week, we read Why Does It Fly? and Why Does It Float?
After that, we did this Native American Craft for Kids Indian Canoes Invitation to Create Process Art Experience. Basically we designed and created our own canoes.
During week four, we learned about Public Transportation – and trains, y’all! We can’t forget about the trains. The little guy has always been totally obsessed with them and probably always will be.
We engineered our own DIY railroad tracks with this Stick Tracks Transportation Investigation Station for Little Kids.
This was for sure the favorite for the month! And realistically, this post has regularly been one of my top few since it was published, so apparently we’re not the only ones who think so.
Wow, y’all! Seriously! I can’t even believe how much fun we had with our Transportation preschool monthly theme. We did lots of really cool stuff, don’t you think?
Don’t forget to stop by next week if you’re interested in seeing what we’re up to with our Bubbles, Boats & Floats theme. And if you missed this year’s preschool homeschool space post, you can check it out here.
