It is hard for me to believe my daughter is turning 5 tomorrow. I mean really where did the last 5 years go, they sure went by fast. I often wish life came with a remote like the TV and I could just pause time and hang out here with my babies for a while longer. But since that is not going to happen I try and enjoy them as much as I can. So when my big girl told me she wanted a Thomas the Train party I knew we had to do a Thomas project.
I also told my family about her wish for a Thomas Birthday and my two Aunts made an AWESOME Thomas Train out of cardboard boxes. I don’t think I could have ever done one that looks so great. And my daughter just loved it. The kids played in it quite a bit, as I am sure you could imagine.
The train my daughter and I made was nowhere near as grand as the one my Aunts did, but we did had fun making it and it worked great as the Snack Train for her party. Oh and if you are wondering how to get all the shoe boxes to make this train, no worries I just called Payless and they held a bunch for me so I did not have to buy a bunch of shoes.
