Creating Boxcars in Pre-K Classes

At Flower Mound Early Care and Education, they created boxcars in their pre-K classes! It was a great activity that fit with the transportation theme for the week. The children loved expressing their creativity by making unique boxcars--they were all beautiful pieces of art!

Materials needed to make boxcars

To make your own boxcars you need the following:

*A small box--can be one used for shipping, a shoebox, etc.

*Construction paper

*Crepe paper

*Glitter

*Markers

*Scissors

*Glue

Note that you don't have to use all of these craft supplies, they just offer more options!

How to make your boxcars

To make your own boxcars you can follow these steps:

1. Take your box.

2. Being cutting-up your supplies you want to attach to the box (construction paper, crepe paper, and so forth).

3. Use your markers to draw on your box on parts that won't be covered with supplies.

4. Being gluing your craft supplies to your box.

5. Wait for the glue to dry once you're done decorating.
