DIY — Cardboard Train

When you’re stuck at home with the kids and have nothing to do, don’t despair! It’s easier than you think. Grab the crayons, glue, glitter, and paint and let their creativity shine. Your kids can do their part and give you a hand and keep themselves occupied at the same time.

Components Used

To create the cardboard train we need:

  • Cardboard Sheets
  • A4 Paper
  • Permanent Marker or Pen
  • Scissor and a Knife
  • Hot Glue Gun or Wood Glue
  • Plaster of Paris
  • Sandpaper
  • Water Color and Coloring Brushes

The link to the carboard train’s template is given below.

So this is how it looks like.
