Songs
Wheels on the Truck goes round and round
The horn on the truck goes beep beep beep
The trash on the truck goes stink stink stink
The trash in the truck gets crushed crushed crushed
The trash in the truck gets dumped dumped dumped
Down at the Dumpster
Sung to: "Down by the station"

Down at the dump early in the morning,
See the dump trucks standing in a row.
See them dump the garbage
In a great big pile,
dump, dump, dump, dump,
watch them go.

Craft
Print out a coloring page for garbage truck. Either you can cut ahead of time or the preschoolers can cut the truck and color it and paste it on construction paper. Then they can glue on peices of colored tissue paper on top and back of truck to represent garbage.
