Make a Pull Train

ages 2-5


Shoe boxes, string or cord, glue, construction paper

Activity Detail

Help your children connect shoe boxes together with cord or string. Add an extra piece of string to the front box for a handle. Decorate boxes with colorful precut shapes (triangles, squares, circles, etc) Put special toys in the box cars, pull on the string and with a "Toot toot" they have their very own train.

My 3 year old thought this was better than any toy at the store. We added Fisher Price people and imagined we were the Polar Express.

This is a great activity for train lovers and is something my son has enjoyed as an art project at our local transit museum. I don't quite recall the specifics of the project my son did, but I think he decorated his train with stickers, along with the pre-cut shapes as mentioned here and he also drew on it. I don't quite recall how he attached the boxes he used to create a train and have to say, that the description of how to do that here isn't very clear. Otherwise, it's a great activity.
