School Bus Sensory Craft

Back to School Tactile Sensory Activity

By Kelly Caruso August 7, 2023

Here is a simple preschool or toddler back to school sensory activity! You only need a few things, making it simple and fun! 

What you’ll need: 

  • Bus print out (template provided below) 
  • Shaving cream or for younger children you can use cool whip! Makes it fun and edible 
  • 1 small drop of yellow food coloring

Have your child paint with a paintbrush or use their fingers for a more in depth sensory experience. We love doing the activity while singing Wheel's On the Bus! Another great activity to incorporate, would be letter identification or sequencing the word bus!
