Vehicle Guessing Game

Check out our fun guessing game! We love transportation and things-that-go, and this game ties in so many types of vehicles. Click here to view and print the vehicle guessing game! We cut out the images, laminated them, and added magnets for use during storytime. Here is the full rhyme:

I have headlights and a steering wheel.

I take you near and far.

My Horn says honk! And my engine says vroom!

Hop in! I am a [car].

I pull cars along the rails.

I chug thought sun or rain.

My smokestack lets out a woo-woo!

Hop aboard! I am a [train].

I’ll take you soaring in the sky.

We’ll reach the clouds and sun!

I come in bright colors, with a basket for you.

Hop in! I am a [hot air balloon].

I have two wheel and a handlebar,

And pedals you will like.

You can ride me down the road.

Hop on! I am a [bike].

I have wings and an engine that roars.

My comfy cabin chairs contain

Lots of seats where passengers sit.

Hop aboard! I am a [plane].

I have a great big cab and a loud horn,

And big wheels so I won’t get stuck,

A giant trailer to carry big loads.

Hop aboard! I am a [truck].

Hot or Cold Activity

Here's a perfect, year-round activity to play with your young ones! Whether it's in a storytime, classroom, or home, kids love deciding what objects are hot and which ones are cold. At the Cape May County Library, we printed our list, laminated them, and added magnets to use on a felt board. Depending on the size of your storytime, classroom, or home, you can either give each child a card to place under the appropriate category, or hold them up one at a time and have the kids yell out the appropriate temperate.

Farm or Zoo Activity

Animals are always a hit with kids of all ages! One of our favorite activities is "Farm or Zoo," where the kids get to decide who lives where. After printing, laminating, and adding magnets to the back of the animals, storytime attendees have had a great time figuring out the home of their animal. Depending on the size of the storytime group or classroom, each child can get a card and assign it a home, or they can be shown the card and yell out where it lives.
