Henry loves cars. More precisely vehicles of any description. As soon as he discovered the world of vehicles he has pretty much lived and breathed them. Yes, he has other toys, all different types but he is always drawn to the car box. Its got to the point I don’t even put the lid back on the box.
He has invented a couple of games he plays with the cars, crashing cars off the edge of the toy box (thanks YouTube), he may get the road mat out, but that’s getting quite rare. There is one game he plays which he will do every single day and that’s parking spaces. He just wants to park the cars in spaces. He does this in free play and sometimes we have to draw him out a car park if he asks, we currently have 2 different versions of a car park in use at the moment.
We have added letters to the parking spaces at the minute to help with his phonics and recognising the letters. We tell him which letter to park in and he goes and parks his car. That’s just giving him an added bonus of learning in there too, which all helps with everything I mentioned in my previous post School Preparation for a 4 year old.
