Train Themed Preschool Craft: Train Buttons

This is another fun train activity we did. A friend of ours gave us a couple of these create you own buttons. This makes a quick easy craft, and the buttons are reusable. I am thinking we might try to change out the button design to go with each month's unit.

Train Themed Preschool (or Tot School) Craft: Train Buttons

  • Create your own button
  • Small train coloring pages (or plain paper to draw trains on)
  • crayons or markers
  • scissors (for a parent or older preschooler to use)
  1. Have the children draw or decorate their trains.
  2. Open up the button.
  3. Show the child how to trace around the circle and cut it out, or do this step for a younger child.
  4. Put the button back together, and you're done!

My boys think the train buttons that they made themselves are really neat, but they do prefer to have the buttons on their backpacks instead of their shirts, so they can see them more easily.
