Do your kids love trains? I think we all have train tracks laying around the house, but what can we do with them besides turn them into painful obstacles to step on in the middle of the night? How can I turn these land minds into something that can help my children learn? Here are ten great ideas that can extend your play time and even turn it into fun learning for your kids. I even included one idea for those who don’t want to run out and buy a set of tracks. You are probably safer at night for not having them.
In every country we have visited you can buy a set of these little gems. One of the things we kept with us, even in the RV, were these wooden train and track sets. Even if you don’t want to spend money on the tracks there are still great things to do with trains that will encourage your kids to learn.
