If you have trouble remembering birthdays, then you are going to love this Birthday Train.

No more forgetting anyone's birthday


Time: 1-2 hours
Age: Any Age
Level: Easy (younger children may need adult help with cutting)

Materials
Coloured cardboard
Scissors
Train and carriage template. (The template is not restricted to a train. Depending on what your child's interest is, you can choose balloons, flowers, animals etc)
The train can be left plain or decorated. We have used stars, however you might like glitter, crepe paper, paint or stickers.

Very limited materials needed


Method
Draw and cut out 1 train and 12 carriage templates.

Great for kids to trace around templates


Once you have chosen the colour order, write the names of the months and birth dates in each carriage. This is a great opportunity for the kids to practice writing their names as well as their family and friends names.

Don't forget anyone


At this point you can leave it as it is and place them on a cork board or wall. Your child might like to draw or decorate the train and carriages with bright colours and stickers.

Decorating time


Once complete place the train and carriages on a wall for everyone to see.

All done


Looks great
