What little boy doesn't like trains? Mine is currently in Love.
Everyday we pass this old (recently restored) historic train depot. I finally took the time to stop and visit. Inside were some old photographs and a few other odds and ends that little hands should not touch. The outside was its redeeming quality. It is beautiful. I believe Little Mister enjoyed going up and down the stairs more than anything else. We played until the mowers showed up... this was our cue to scram!
(He is a little scared of LOUD noises.)
These were some really neat old pictures of the depot. In the top picture it is on the right. In the lower picture it is far back and on the left.
Of course our activities for the day had to be ALL about trains!
We practiced spelling his name on a Name Train.
I fired up the Photoshop and made a quick Train Trace Pre-Writing practice sheet.
Have you tried this with your kiddos? I actually still have one from my childhood.
