Choo Choo Chair Train


Do your kids look a little bored this afternoon? Maybe you could suggest they build a train out of chairs! Send them scouting around the house for as many as they can find so it can be really long.

Then of course, they'll need to round up some passengers; stuffed animals and little siblings work well!

Kids can take turns being the engineer- tooting the whistle and leading the others in the chugging sounds and of course, announcing what they see up ahead on the tracks. Maybe they would like to sing along with a Thomas the Train CD after they have made up their own fun for a little while!

As a nanny, (in Olso, Norway) he little boy was obsesed with motorcycles, so we used to put to chairs togeather (seat to seat) to make a two passenger motorcyle. He loved wearing his viking helmet and "leather/flannel" jacket just like his dad. He would always have his stuffy or big sister in the back as his passenger!

Great idea! Keep them comming!
