Young children love songs about vehicles. Other than the Wheels on the Bus, they are hard to find! This song works well with the youngest children up to age five. The recorded song slows down at the end of each verse to allow small hands time to manipulate the motions.

Cut out five cars in different colors of felt. (The patterns are on the next page.) Place cars on flannel board one at a time as you sing the song. Take off the biggest and the smallest at the end of the song.

Lots of Cars

There are lots of cars driving down the street
(hands on steering wheel, turning back and forth)
Tell me what color car do you see
(place a felt car on the board as you name the color)
Big cars, little cars
(spread arms on “big”, bring hands close for “little”)
Beep, beep, beep
(hand taps nose 3 times)

Variation:

Make enough cars so that each child can have one. As you sing the song and name each color, children with those cars can place them on the felt board. This works well if you have a small group, or in a library program of young children where a parent is present to help guide the children.
