The next day, at school, we began painting the bus.
At the art table we had collected materials from our storage
and art areas for the children to create parts to add to our
cardboard bus. Unfortunately I don’t have any pictures of
them creating only of the finish pieces.
New black tires.
Mirrors for the driver.
Hand straps in case we have to stand.
The pull cord when we get to our bus stop.
The money drop box.
A destination panel, lights and license plate adorn the front
of the bus.
Rear view of the bus.
"All aboard", the bus is ready to roll and passengers are waiting.
The passengers pay as they step on to the bus.
The driver checks that all are on board and the bus is on it’s way.
This project has included planning, designing, building,investigating,
exploring and sharing our ideas. It has allowed us to follow the
interests of many children, of various ages, in our program and
create alongside them in the development of a new dramatic play
area with exposure to real life experiences.
Thanks for joining us on this trip of playing and learning.
