Toddler Train

Your child will enjoy filling up each car with her stuff and pulling the train behind her wherever she goes.

Materials
  • 3 or more assorted boxes
  • String, ribbon, or yarn
  • Plastic straws
  • Scissors

Directions

  1. Use scissors or another pointed object to poke small holes in the ends of each box.
  2. Insert about 1 foot of string, ribbon, or yarn into the back hole of the first box, then tie the end of the string around a short piece of plastic straw to prevent it from pulling through the hole.
  3. Insert the other end of the string through the front hole of the next box and fasten it in the same way.
  4. Use more string to continue connecting the boxes until the train is finished.
  5. Use a longer length of string for the front hole of the first box.
  6. Tie a cylindrical wooden block or small plastic vitamin bottle to the end of this string for a handle.
