Train Party Game Ideas
Idea 1 - Free play, bring out your trains (and maybe borrow a friends) for free play time
Idea 4 - Have shoe boxes, buttons, construction paper, and paper towel rolls and make your own trains with these materials.
Idea 5 - Help the engines find their colors non-competitive game: Make a train track on the driveway with sidewalk chalk. Make construction paper tickets out of red, blue, green and black. Have the kids write their names on the tickets. Have different stops along the track with signs that say or picture James, Percy, Edward, Diesel (no colors if you use pictures). The first time around hand out a colored tickets (make sure they do not match. Ex. James station hands out black, Percy station hands out blue...). The second time around have them drop the color at the correct engine. James=red, Percy=green, Edward=blue, Diesel=black. Give out prizes at the end for good matching!
Idea 6 - Train Toot story. Read a Thomas the Tank Engine story and have the kids blow their whistle each time they hear the word "Thomas".
