Glitter Train Tracks

DSCF0330 ed

We’ve been having some more train fun here in the Monkey and Mouse household.  O decided he wanted to make something with glue.  So we decided to make glitter’y’ train tracks!

It’s a very simple craft, with a short list of materials:

* Paper

* PVA glue

* Glitter and

* Paper train


All you need to do is use the glue to make a long track on the paper.  When the track is finished sprinkle your choice of glitter colour on top of the glue, shake the glitter around so it covers all of the glue track and get rid of the excess glitter.


Add any extras, O chose to just add a little line of green to represent woodland, but you could be more elaborate and make a glue station etc.


Glue a train on the tracks and it’s finished!

A nice and simple glittery gluey train craft! 🙂

Enjoy getting glittery (and yes, there is still glitter on baby A and he wasn’t even involved in this craft and he has had two baths since!!)

    I love that your baby still has glitter on him. What a great, easy idea – thanks for sharing.

    A great simple one for children to enjoy. I’m pinning this one, with our Coombe Mill train I think the children here would enjoy this for craft hour. Popping by from Let kids be Kids

    A fab idea, I will be keeping this one in mind for when I’m brave enough for glitter – maybe we can try glitter glues first! #Letkidsbekids

      Try it outside if you’re worried about mess, I like to keep our messier activities for the spring/summer outdoors! 🙂
