Books
Cars: rushing! honking! zooming! by:Patricia Hubbell
A rhyming book showing different types of cars and what they do. Easy to skip parts for younger, more wiggly audience.
The Wheels on the Bus Go Round and Round by:Annie Kubler
It's fun to sing along with the nursery rhyme song in this big book.
The Wheels on the Bus by:Paul O. Zelinsky
Another fun option for singing along to the traditional rhyme.

Craft
Paint with cars.
Cover a surface on the floor with a tarp. Roll small cars through washable paint and then roll them on large pieces of paper to create designs.
Other
Stations:
1) Bus role play
2) Cars, trucks and play mat to roll them on
3) Toys that roll
4) Sort things that roll and things that do not roll
Notes
I put tables flat on the floor for toddler crafts.
We blow bubbles at the beginning as an ice breaker and to give people time to arrive. We play with a parachute between circle time and toy / station time.
