Truck Matching, Flannel Friday

This truck matching game was originally created for a coworker but I used it recently for my earthmover storytime. The elements are all created with my library’s die cut sets. The trucks were backed with black felt to be sturdier.

Once more, this flannel was a quick piece created with die cut elements. I think that this flannel is pretty easy to understand. There are six colored people. There are six colored trucks. The goal is to match the person to the truck.

If you want, you can sing a little song as you get ready to match your felt elements. I’ve seen several versions of this song across the internet. But I made this one up to be super-simple and allow me to interchange all of the different trucks.

My Favorite Truck (Sung to “My Bonnie Lies Over the Ocean”)

My favorite truck is a ______________.
That’s the only one it could be.
My favorite truck is a ______________.
So point the right truck out to me.

Sing your verse and then have the children call out when you point to the appropriate vehicle.


Thanks to Linda at for hosting this week’s Flannel Friday!
