Kids really dig trucks! Check out these 30 free printable truck coloring pages (all types of trucks) for your kids fascinated with trucks.
History of Trucks
The very first functioning truck-based motor vehicle was made by Gottlieb Daimler, a German company, in 1896. The truck was four horsepower engine with two forward speeds and one reverse. It was technically, the first pickup truck.
In the 1770s, a steam-powered motor vehicle could haul five tons. Today, an 18-wheeler semi truck can haul twenty-plus tons of goods.
Why are children fascinated with trucks?
Kids love trucks probably for the same reason adults do.
Trucks are larger than life, demand respect on the road, and plainly… make pretty cool and loud noises. Their colors can be bold or they can have cool images on them representing companies they belong to.
As adults, we don’t think much of them at times but kids still find them super interesting and quite frankly, fascinating to look at.
When you give a child a toy truck they automatically start using their imagination. It may not seem obvious to us but kids moving around trucks and diggers let’s say, in a sandbox, they are stimulating their brain in many ways while using their fine motor skills to control movement.
Your children will enjoy these simple coloring pages for trucks of all kinds. They can use their favorite colors for each truck picture, practice eye-hand coordination, use their fine motor skills, and enjoy a fun way to encourage their interests in trucks.
