How To Make: A Cardboard Box Toy Train

How to Make Cardboard Toy Trains

This craft is a lot of fun to make and even more fun to play with. Here are some basic guidelines to make this, but use your own creativity to make it even better. Connect a few large boxes together, as pictured above. Take notice that the first box needs to be face down so that you can put a smoke stack on top of it. Bring the side flap from the first box up and cut out a rectangle from the inside of it for the window. The 2nd box car needs to be taller so that you can cut an ‘L’ shape in the front of it. This is the box that you sit in so attach a steering wheel to the front of the box. Either glue it or if you want it to spin use a brass paper fastener. The following boxes should have the tops open so people or toys can sit in them. You can connect all the box cars together. You can connect them with glue…or if you want you can poke holes in each of the boxes and connect them with rope or string by tying knots on both sites of the rope. For wheels, paint or just color paper plates and glue them on. On the top of , attach an oatmeal box with another cylinder box on top of it. You can paint them or glue construction paper around them. The rest is up to you…be creative and have fun.
