How Do You Make A Cardboard Box Train?
Making a cardboard box train from shoe boxes is a simple craft that kids can do with a parent on a rainy day. Shoes boxes are just the right size for transporting stuffed animals and dolls on this homemade train. The rest of the building materials are easily found around the house. Punch two holes, side-by-side, in four of the box’s narrow sides in the center. Twist the paperclips so that they are ‘S’ shaped. Hook one side of the paperclip into the two holes on one box and the other end into the holes of another box. Repeat this step until three of the boxes are linked with paperclips. These will be the cars of the train. Cut the box without holes in half. Put the box, cut side down, into the forth box with holes. The two open ends should be facing each other. Glue the boxes together. This will be the engine of the train. Cut the paper plate in half and glue it to the front of the engine for a cow catcher. The flat edge of the plate should be parallel with the bottom of the bottom box.
