Where we live were quite close to several farms so every day we have tractors and farm equipment rolling up the road past our house. My son thinks it’s great, he loves all things farm and lets be honest, tractors are pretty cool! We made this cute little funky foam tractor craft to go on his bedroom door as part of a door sign. All we did is glue it down on a strip of card and write his name on it and it looks fab. They’re really simple to make and provide a great opportunity to practise learning shapes too.
You will need
Choose the main colour you want to use for your tractor. From this colour, cut out the L shape to make the body of your tractor as shown above.
Cut out a strip of your primary colour that’s slightly wider than the top of your L piece and glue it down along the top. Then, cut out a white square and glue it down in place to make your window.
Cut out one large circle for the rear wheel and one slightly smaller circle for the front wheel. Stick them down.
Cut out two circles which are slightly smaller than the wheels you just made. Glue them down in the centre of the wheel to complete your tyres. Finish off your funky foam tractor by cutting out a little rectangle spout and attaching it to the back of your tractor.
