Train Story and Craft
Mrs. Amber Shares one of her son’s favorite bedtime stories Steam Train, Dream Train by Sherri Duskey Rinker and Tom Lichtenheld (Illustrator).
There are many fun craft ideas that can be paired with a train book. Below are two examples, a shape train and a tape resist train.
Creating a train out of cut out shapes and glue is a fun way to let your child’s imagination grow. Set out a variety of shapes in different sizes and just see where their imagination takes them.
A tape resist craft can be made by putting down tape or contact paper and coloring over it, making sure the area around the tape is colored or painted. In this example we used Kwik Sticks a great tempura paint stick that is low mess. Then one you have finished covering the page let your kiddo help pull off the tape to reveal your picture (this is a good fine motor activity).
