The cement truck template pdf includes everything you need for this craft.

Step 2: Staple and Cut Out the Construction Craft Shapes

Staple each part of the template to multiple sheets of paper to quickly cut out lots of shapes.

Once you have the cement truck template printed out, staple it to construction paper and cut out multiple shapes at a time.

Note: If you want to make this craft with a group of kids, you can staple the template to up to 10 sheets of copy paper, 5 sheets of cardstock or 6-10 sheets of construction paper.

So, did you know, you can staple together 10 pieces of copy paper and cut out 10 shapes at a time?! That’s my SECRET to fast & easy crafting.

Stapling the paper is very important because it makes sure it doesn’t move as you cut. The more staples the better. Cardstock is the thickest so you may only be able to cut 5 sheets at a time.

Step 3: How to Assemble

The kids will have so much fun making this construction craft!

I recommend having a cement truck that is already put together so the children can see what the final version will look like.

  1. start with the large yellow part of the cement truck
  2. glue on the black window
  3. glue on the black wheels
  4. glue the white hubcaps onto the black wheels
  5. glue on the gray cement mixer
  6. add yellow stripes to the cement mixer
  7. don’t forget to write your name on the back
