Paper City Vehicles

I’ve had a lot of requests (including from my son) for some cars and trucks for the paper city.  So here they are!  There’s a template below if you want to try them out.  Just cut on the black outlines and fold.  Cool!

Template: Click on the image below, then print.

    Peggy Rice - That's a good idea! I'll definitely have to make a helicopter.

    Thank you so much for sharing your lovely city design. It kept my 4 year old and I very occupied for most of the afternoon today. His older brother and father were also quite interested in it when they got home later in the day. Thank you for being so generous with your designs.

    These are such great designs. I will be printing them out to play with in our Lego city. I posted a how-to and your cars and trucks will work with very little modifications! Here's the link to the how-to.

    would you accept to adopt me or mary me even if I'm old, already married and French ??? No !
    mmmm, then I am going to continue to dream in front of the "merveilleux" world that you create and share here.
    Thank you so much; you've got a great talent!

    My students attached a paper clip to the vehicle and then moved it with a magnet:

    1. August 29, 2011 at 7:44 am

      Cool, I love that trick too! I've been doing this with another paper project that I'm working on, but haven't tried it with the paper city cars. Nice one!

    1. November 3, 2012 at 9:36 pm

      Hey Sara-Lee. Thanks! Hmmm, that's really weird that you're having trouble with pinning. Usually things pin just fine.

    yes sorry typo *pinterest i cant seem to see the pin it button anywhere on your page? very very cool stuff by the way, Im a primary school teacher and your ideas are fantastic for the classroom:)

    1. November 3, 2012 at 10:09 pm

      Yeah, I don't have a built-in pin button for my page, but you can pin photos from any site by using the Pinterest droplet thing. They have instructions for how to do it. Good luck and thanks again! Happy teaching!

    Hello Joel, somehow, I can't print the vehicule page right. When I click on the template, it doesn't open as a pdf but it opens in the browser. Am I the only one experimenting this problem?

    1. November 17, 2012 at 1:19 pm

      Hey Stephanie. Try it now! Thanks! Joel

      Wow, that was a quickly solved problem! Thanks!

    3. November 17, 2012 at 1:26 pm

      Ha, yeah, you were lucky and caught me during baby's nap time! I can get a lot done fast during naps! :)

    Oh, Joel, thank you so much for making these adorable images available. My 7-year-old will love them. Say, I think it's super that you offer them for free, but I was wondering, have you ever thought of putting ALL your coloring pages and paper city pages together into ONE PDF and then charging a nominal sum for it? It took me quite some time to click on and save as all the documents, and I know that *I* would certainly be willing to pay a buck or two to get them ALL AT ONCE, in one PDF. You could still offer them for free individually, but for those of us who want or need to maximize their brief online time each day, having ALL of them with just one click would be worth a dollar or two. Thanks for such a great site and such lovely resources!

    1. November 28, 2012 at 3:29 pm

      Thanks Morro! As for the one download. That's a good idea. I'll have to think about the best way to do that. Also, I'm in the process of producing some of the paper cities as kits that people can buy. I'll keep everyone posted.

  35. December 28, 2012 at 8:34 am

    Dear Joel, your paper city is amazing! I use it to play with my kids especially with our homemade moon sand. I've posted a link right here: Thank you very much for sharing your talent!

    1. December 28, 2012 at 10:43 pm

      Wow, that looks so fun! Thanks for showing me! And very cool homemade moon sand!
