Pumpkin Train Track Play - DIY

We used popsicle sticks (a few building blocks and tape) to hold our track up and

We created a separate top and bottom track and added pine comes and tree stubs to create our Giant Pumpkin Land! This was a great way to get our little monsters interacting with nature and with old toys- we even saw a few little monster, who never play with the trains, interacting and exploring within our Giant Pumpkin Land!

It's also been great for sharing & turn taking (only two at a time, because the top track is VERY fragile), small world, imagination, and small gross motor skills.

We HIGHLY recommended this activity. It's simple to put together- all you need is:
Some Pumpkins
Popsicle Sticks (we used a knife to make slits before putting the sticks in)
Play Trains used golf tees
Train Track set
Blocks and tape (if you need help holding up the track)
Anything nature like - leaves, rocks, pine comes or tree stubs
And a few little Monsters!
