Cars are a big hit in our house. I swear, we have 2 billion of them filling up the toy bins. Okay, okay, 264 on last count. Somehow, the Gibbon comes home with a new one every time we go to the store, or grandma goes to the store, or he visits great-grandma. You get the idea.
Cars may seem like they are only good for the obvious: pretending to drive and racing down tracks. But there's so much more you can do.
You can line them up. You can create a pattern. You can count them. You can build garages for them out of blocks.
You can sort them by color.
You can create stories about them, or put them into groups to show teamwork. Can we do it? Yes, we can! Too much Bob the Builder.
