Train Craft {Polar Express OR Year Round Fun}

It’s December!  If your classroom is anything like mine, you’re powering through mid-year assessments so you can enjoy some holiday fun before break!

Today I’m sharing a fun addition to my Polar Express day: a train craft and writing activity.

I love using craftivities in the classroom!  They are a perfect way to practice cutting and fine motor skills, PLUS work on those direction following skills in a fun way!  And as a bonus you have something fun to display in the classroom.


This craft has four car options – train engine, passenger car and a coal car that can be used as a gift car for a Christmas or birthday train!

You can combine the cars to create a class train or have each kiddo build their own depending on how much time you have!

After building your train you can use the editable writing promts to tell about your train ride, describe the train you made or retell a favorite train story!
