Playing with the Trains

Remember my concern about Grace’s trains?

I think I’ve found the root of the problem. The tracks were so elaborate that she was overwhelmed. She didn’t know what to do.

Since I started making little circular tracks with her, the trains are seeing a lot more action – and the kind they’re intended to see!

The trains talk to each other and to their passengers.  It’s quite cute.

I especially like when she and her dad cover every inch of the track with trains. It’s like a bumper to bumper traffic jam.

Because I’ve never put him away, Baby Jesus gets to ride the trains most days. So do her Littlest Pet Shop animals and the rest of the Little People.

If she could get the real cats to sit still long enough, they’d probably get to ride the trains, too.

I’m not counting on that to happen.

  1. We LOVE thomas the train in our house too!! Give her time – those tracks will be around coffee tables and down the hallway before you know it!!

  2. Cute. Some times we as parents think things will be great for kids, but it is too much and they become overwhelmed! Bravo for finding what works for Grace!

  3. I have had these tracks with all 5 of my children…with my 4th he loved them so much I bought more and more and saw him play with them less and less…when I did what you did…kept them simple…he loved them again! Learned my lesson!

  4. How cute! My girls love trains too. I love that girls can love trains and Littlest Pet Shop animals. It’s great to be a girl. 🙂 It’s so sweet that Baby Jesus can ride the train, too. It reminds me of that song…”People get ready. There’s a train a-coming. You don’t need no baggage. You just get on board. All you need is faith to hear the diesel humming. You don’t need no ticket. You just thank the Lord.” If you play along on Musical Monday with Diane of Good Mourning, Glory, that would be a great pick for you to join in the fun.

    I’m visiting all the PSF posts a little late. Come visit me. 🙂

  5. Hmm I've never thought about that. My son loves his trains but when we make him up a big ole track he just mostly wrecks it. I'll have to try a smaller track and see what happens.

    Love the traffic jam! haha
