Homemade Thomas the Tank Engine party decorations and party supplies are very welcome at a young child’s party. In fact, it is the homemade decorations that are usually the biggest hit! Think about it, at Christmas when children are young, they are more interested in the box the toy came in rather than the toy! Keep that in mind when creating handmade party decorations- it doesn’t have to be elaborate, it just has to be fun!
With that said, a great, simple homemade Thomas the Tank Engine craft is perfect for ages one all the way to 5 or six years! The craft supplies needed are boxes of relatively close size, a lot of blue paint, paint brush, a fair amount of yellow, red and black paint, yarn and scissors. The amount of boxes needed will depend on how big the Thomas the Tank Engine will be. Another option would be to make multiple trains in a line.
In order to make the Thomas the Tank Engine out of boxes, they will need to be painted first. After the boxes are painted, it is time to punch holes in them with either a hole punch or scissors. It is best to punch two holes at the top and two holes at the bottom by the opening with the box opening facing to the right. Do the same with the next box but leave both ends open and create the same hole by overlapping the flaps and punching holes through. Next, tie the yarn through both box flaps and secure it closed on both the top and bottom. Do this as many times as necessary to get the length needed. When coming to the end of the handmade party decoration, close the box end up and it is finished!
