Camper vans - Toddler crafts, activities and resources



A camper van is simply a vehicle which is used both for moving about and sleeping in. They are sometimes also called motorhomes, although a motorhome tends to be larger and perhaps with a toilet or a divide between the cab and the living areas. The classic campervan was manufactured by Volkswagen, and it's these which most interest my toddler. You don't see many of these classic camper vans about, but my son will always point one out when he sees one. I think that it must be the fascination of a vehicle which is also a home.

Campervan crafts


Make a simple campervan from a shoebox - it's just as much fun making it as playing with it, especially designing the inside!

Several more campervans to colour. You don't need to stick to colouring the pictures of course, you could use coloured scraps of paper or fabric to make a collage, and bling it up with glitter and sequins.

This is one for the adults to make - a very cool camper van toy box.
