Shoe Box Trains
Shoe box, art supplies, string
Shoe boxes come in handy for so many crafts - here's another idea for any empty boxes you have lying around the house. Have your preschooler decorate the shoe box with markers, crayons, stickers, and other art supplies. Once they've finished decorating the shoe box, poke a hole in one end, and tie a string (about 3 feet long) through the hole. Let your child fill the box with stuffed animals or other cargo, and then use the string to pull it around the house or yard. You can even string several boxes together to make a longer train. All aboard!
