Transportation Co-Op - Trains!


 
 At our Co-Op the little ones in our group had two stories read to them and they did a craft where we cut out the train cars, glued them to a large piece of paper and labeled them. Then they got to go into the foyer of the Church and play with the train sets that we brought. We had a plastic one, a wooden set and a bunch of good sets. They had so  much fun with them! I also brought wooden blocks and mega blocks to build houses and tunnels.


 
 
Some other moms baked cookies with the older kids and they left some for our group to come in and decorate them. I think Zoe ate way too many candies, but it was so much fun!

 
I'm not sure what game this was, but the kids seemed to have a great time.

 
 
I think this is a version of musical chairs?

 
 
Some of the older kids went down to play with the trains when they had a chance to. In the above images the girls were making tunnels with their bodies. Talk about creative! Here the train is going under her back.


Above the kids are playing a game where they had to remember where in the room they had to go and what they had to do by what type of train was called out. Or at least I think that is what they were doing.
 
After cleaning up some of the kids went out to the park to play.
