You might have seen a bit about the Scribble Shop Challenge…several bloggers got a box full of craft supplies with the direction of using it in a craft project. I had a few ideas in mind, but one day my kids were extra board so I broke out the supplies and we all got painting!
And my little boys LOVE trains, so naturally that is what we made.
When I first opened the box, this is what I saw…
Then I glued them together and we painted them blue and green. For the wheels I painted some paper plates with the chalkboard paint, using the brads as the centers. Then I decorated the crap out of the train using the feathers, glitter, fabric, and roving.
I think it turned out cute and my kids love playing with it! I totally went overboard with the glitter but I haven’t actually used real glitter since like 3rd grade. By the end I looked like a 14 year old girl wearing body glitter.
