Craft: Recycled Train

My son still enjoys playing with trains. We used a tin can and some Snapple tea lids for the wheels. We found a cardboard box from some sticks of butter, toilet paper tube and used hot glue to fasten it together. Add a coat of silver spray paint and you are on the rails! We saved some cereal boxes and created a tunnel too.

I thought this was such a clever idea that I showed my son. He made a slightly bigger one for school to hold his valentimes. It is painted silver and decorated with red hearts and he calls it The Love Train.
