Colouring and crafting with IVECO
Iveco has two coloring pages, one of the IVECO S-WAY and one of the IVECO Daily. They also have a crafting sheet of the IVECO Dakar Rally truck of Team De Rooy.
The IVECO S-WAY is available as a color plate, this photo is from IVECO
The Truckstar Do-book
The Truckstar Do-book (only available in the Netherlands) contains coloring and building pages, puzzles, mazes, brainteasers and fun facts. This will keep the kids busy for a while. If they finish it, they still have a memory game to play.
Order the Truckstar Do-book
Facts about Scania
Scania has put together a whole PowerPoint presentation to be able to do a presentation about the brand. It contains fun facts about the history and all sorts of other things about Scania. Nice for the kids to let them know everything about Scania from the very beginning.

Crafting and colouring with DAF
DAF has coloring and crafting sheets on its website. The crafting sheets can be downloaded in different DAF truck models: the XF, CF, LF and the SpaceCab. There’s even a crafting sheet of the A2000 from 1959. In terms of coloring pages, there’s also a lot of choice and the kids can make their own truck by a ‘connect the numbers’ coloring page.
Learn about the history of MAN
Like Scania, MAN has information for a presentation. Only not in a ready-made PowerPoint presentation. On the MAN website the kids can find a timeline with the corresponding history. They can also download a photo package that includes some oldtimer MAN trucks.

Build a diorama with Mercedes-Benz
No trucks crafts from Mercedes-Benz unfortunately, but they do have car crafts. The kids can put together a diorama. There is a version for boys and for girls. In addition, they can color a picture of a Mercedes-Benz car or put together a construction board. On the Mercedes-Benz site there’s also a presentation package.
