Preschoolers develop a fascination with trains early on. There are many train products on the market, but the tracks get pretty pricey. These make-at-home train tracks can provide a solution to that problem.
Do you have a little train enthusiast in your home? Train tracks are fun to play with, but sometimes expensive to buy. Luckily, there are many ways you can make your own at home so your little one can enjoy the thrill of playing trains and you can save a couple dollars. Here are three easy make-at-home train tracks you can create today.
Sidewalk chalk train tracks
Janae from I Can Teach My Child gave her son some sidewalk chalk and let him have at it. He proceeded to create his own railroad for a human choo-choo train. Got to love creativity in children! This would be an easy activity to recreate in your own driveway.
Painter’s tape train tracks
Tamsin of Project Project set out to throw her son a train-themed birthday party once she saw how passionate he was about trains. She created train tracks using simple painter’s tape. Painter’s tape won’t damage the floors and comes up in a snap. This would be an excellent indoor rainy day activity. Your kids can play trains throughout the house!
Chalkboard table train tracks
A chalkboard table can function for so many different things. Anna of The Imagination Tree created an entire train station and tracks on hers. The neat thing about making train tracks this way is how easy it would be to redesign the track. A swipe with a washcloth provides a blank canvas for all new adventures.
When it comes to making your own train tracks, the only thing holding you back is your own creativity. Using simple things like tape, chalk or paint, you can create a one-of-a-kind train track just for your child. There are no pieces to put together and no configuration that is off limits!
