  • Before the party, paint and decorate some cardboard boxes as a train for the guests to play in.
  • Set out wooden train sets to play with.
  • Include a train ticket in the invitation and punch the ticket when they arrive. Create tracks on the floor with tape that lead to different rooms in the house. (Idea from
  • All Aboard

    Set some chairs out in a line. Have one person as the train guard and give them a special hat to wear. Have the kids run around the garden or party room and when you blow the whistle they must all rush and sit on a carriage chair without being caught by the train guard. If they are caught they also become a train guard and thus on the next round there will be two guards truing to catch the passengers. (Idea from
  • Read The Little Engine That Could.
  • Play "follow the leader" with the children touching each other's backs as if they are train cars.
  • Pin the caboose on the train engine.
