An Inspired Idea...Construction Vehicles

I thought I'd share my set of construction vehicles that go with the book, Tip Tip Dig Dig by Emma Garcia. I was inspired Jane's amazing set at Piper Loves the Library here.  I made this set for my library, but I think I'll make a set for me too...just bigger!

I took a couple of liberties with the design...The cement mixer is 2 shades of purple and all of the tires are charcoal gray.  I used google eyes too. I took this pic while the glue was still wet so the crane looks a little goopy and for some reason the orange looks washed out in this pic. 


I also made this flannel dumptruck set based on the craft and rhyme here.  I used matching color, shiny sequins for the hubcaps!  Got a little bling in there! LOL! 

I am really looking forward to using both of these sets this summer. We'll have a lot of fun with friends when we Dig Into Reading this summer!


  1. This is on my summer storytime list too! Very cute. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Thanks for sharing, Kathryn! a Tip Tip Dig Dig set is on my to make list. Love the vibrant colors you used.

  3. Thanks for sharing! I have it on by TBM (to be made) pile before I do my construction story time at the end of July. Now I have to add your 5 trucks too. :)

  4. Awwwww, these are sooooo adorable. Thanks for sharing your thoughts with us.

  5. Kathryn!
