It is all about Planes, Trains and Automobiles this month at the Poppin’s Book nook. We found a great Train book perfect for bedtime:
Steam Train, Dream Train
by Sherri Duskey Rinker
To extend the book we made our own dream train to load some furry friends into before bedtime.
The train cars were made from empty tea boxes, but boxes of all shapes and sizes would work just as well.
I wanted the kids to be able to cover the cars themselves easily, so I put out different colors of tissue paper and scotch tape. They tore and folded and scrunched it to cover each ‘car’ and then added some black circles for wheels.
We did not join up the train cars because the kids wanted to take turns with their own cars ‘going first’ (translation: to avoid arguments).
Here are all the toys loaded up and ready to go to bed!
