I got the idea for today’s craft from a beautiful blog called Mer Mag and more specifically from this post, in which she created a train for her kids using tea boxes and colored duct tape. I thought it would be fun to recreate her idea in the spirit of Print-cut-paste-craft.com and create some templates for you to just print, cut and paste on your tea boxes. Here is the result!
For the train in the pictures I have just printed the colored templates ( you can download them for free here), cut them and used colored brads for the wheels. If you want I also uploaded the black and white templates (here) so you can let your little one color his/her own train before cutting and pasting. It is really easy and it is a great way to reuse those tea boxes you might have in your pantry, my son loves filling the boxes up with all his little toys and have them go for a ride, but you can use them also to organize a child’s crayons and other art supplies or as little gift boxes for a themed party. I would love to hear from you how you used them!
