Remember the song “The Wheels on the Bus”? I hadn’t realized this before, but I heard my kids singing it the other day and realized the song teaches kids about vehicles and not just shapes and sounds.

Let’s break down how “The Wheels on the Bus” can help adults with their vehicle maintenance.

The Wheels

Those wheels on the bus? If they don’t have enough air in them, they’ll go flat, flat, flat.

The Wipers

If your wipers are in good condition, they will definitely sound like swish, swish, swish.

The Blinkers

If the blinkers go blinkblinkblink instead of blink, blink, blink, you may have a bad bulb.

The Horn

If the horn doesn’t go beep, beep, beep, you might have a dead fuse.

The Engine

The engine should go vroom, vroom, vroom, but if it doesn’t, it’s time for a tune-up!

The Brakes

The brakes should go stop, stop, stop. If they go squeak, squeak, squeak, you should go to the shop, shop, shop!

The Money

The money goes clink, clink, clink. Especially if you don’t keep up with the maintenance on your vehicle.
