Recycled Train

The other day when my two oldest were at school and the baby was napping I decided my three year old and I needed to spend a little one-on-one time together doing something special.  It isn't that often that we do crafts so we pulled out the paints and some recyclable items and make this cute little choo-choo train.

This little guy loves to paint!  He was in heaven.  He had so much fun picking out what colors he wanted to use to paint his egg carton, and then when he was all done, mixing all the colors on his paint-pallet-plate together.

Once everything was painted we placed a toilet paper tube at the front to make a smoke stack with some cotton (or smoke) coming out of the top.  He was so pleased with his special creation that he made all by himself and we had so much fun spending time together.  It was time well spent.
