I wish I thought of this when my boys and grandkids were small. They played with toy train and cars all the time. They would have loved this. This is a great way to let your little ones get creative and for spending time with them and they will be so excited because they made it themselves. So inexpensive because you are using large dryer sheet boxes so you are teaching them to recycle. A great painted train engine shed and I would even use it for their toy cars too. Great project.

My son and I spent many fun hours creating a train layout! This little engine shed would have been a nice addition! And the sky's the limit in creativity! Add some painted bottle caps to the top to make a 'tiled' roof to your shed. Get some twigs and use green and brown construction paper or tissue paper and attach to the twig to make a tree or little bush and glue it to the side of the shed just for fun!
