Boxes, cushions or children’s chairs, cap or hat, paper or card, plastic or paper plate
Toddlers love going on buses and trains, so why not create your own?

Line up the boxes, cushions or chairs in a row to make the bus or train seats. Make ‘tickets’ simply by cutting up the paper or card into small rectangles. Now you’re ready for some passengers!

Get your toddler to fetch their cuddly toys and/or dolls and give each one a ticket. The toy at the front (or your toddler) gets to wear the hat and be the driver, using the plate as a steering wheel. Then you’re off!

You can pretend to stop at stations and pick up and drop off passengers – not forgetting making lots of ‘brum brum’ or ‘choo choo’ noises!
