Moving Vehicle with Trailer


Create a beautifully designed moving vehicle with trailer which combines a structure with a series of mechanisms (wheels and axles). This project is perfect for Key Stage 1 children as it allows creativity, design and the understanding of basic mechanisms. This project allows children fully creativity as they can embellish their vehicle and trailer with whatever they can find (bottle tops, lollipop sticks, feathers – the list is endless!).

Please note embellishments are NOT included.
