How does it work?

  1. Cut a rectangle and square from green paper as pictured. You will also need a small yellow square, two small black wheels, one large black wheel, a red smokestack, and a red triangle.
  2. Arrange the train according to the picture and glue to a white piece of paper. Do not glue the black wheels.
  3. Poke brad through the center of each wheel and the train. Open the brad so the wheels can turn freely.
  4. It may take a few turns before the wheels turn easily. Make the hole a little bigger if you have problems turning the wheels. Glue three cotton balls coming out from the smokestack to represent the train moving down the track.
  5. Use glitter glue to embellish the train. Add glitter glue around the window, as spokes for the wheels, or anywhere else kids want to put a bit of sparkle.
  6. Write the words “Polar Express” on your train. You can also write “Polar X-Press” if the longer word won’t fit on your trains.
