Visit a Construction Site

Construction sites are busy places and the sights and sounds are nearly endless.  Whether you choose to visit a small site in your neighborhood or a larger site around town your toddler is sure to enjoy himself.  While at the site here are some ideas to keep your toddler engaged (though some may not need any prompting at all to just sit and watch):

  1. Talk about the colors – What color are the machines?  What color are the materials?
  2. Talk about the equipment and what each piece can do.
  3. Talk about what may happen next.
  4. Talk about the sounds you hear – are they loud or soft?
