Since we’re in the process of buying a home and moving, we’re trying to save even more money than we normally do. Not easy folks…not easy! So this means that I’ve had to get even more creative with my DIY, especially with Mr. G’s party. Luckily, if I think I can reuse it, I save it and that’s how the snack train came about!
What You’ll Need:
Empty Shoe Boxes
Take the bodies of the shoe boxes, setting aside the tops for later, and cover them in your paper. I just printed out some stripes on printer paper we already had.
Trace out circles on the cardboard of the tops for wheels and cut them out. Using the glue, cover them with aluminum foil and attach them to the boxes.
For the conductor’s car, take an old toilet paper roll, trace out a place for in on one of the tops, and cut it out. Cover in black paper, or paint it, and stick it in.
You can place some extra foil inside the cars to line it if you like and fill with your favorite treats!
The snack train was a pretty big hit at the party!
