Decorate the train car with sequins, glitter glue, craft foam shapes, stickers, rhinestones, ribbons, puffy paint and any other materials that can transform the car into a festive and glitzy circus train. Drawing or painting patterns and designs are also great ways to jazz up the train car.
A train isn't complete without an engine. Follow the basic steps for making one from our Animal Train craft (see Steps 5-7).
You can make the train engine plain and basic or transform it into a glitzy circus train by decorating it with glitter, sequins, rhinestones and stickers.
This craft can be an opportunity to talk about the plight of circus animals. Have children reflect on what they think the circus animals are feeling and let them translate this through their animal drawings. Arrange a sharing or discussion after the children are done with the craft project.
