Choo Choo Tracks

It seems like all day, every day I hear some sort of train, plane or automobile sound coming from my two year old.  Today we made some "tracks" from some of his trains and trucks using paint.
You need: paper, paint, old trains or trucks and a safe area to paint.   I recommend using toys that have wide wheels or have some tread.  The 99 Cent Store has a great collection. I used some of my veggie containers from the store to hold the paint.
Directions: Pour paint into containers and watch your child have fun pushing their train in the paint and then onto their paper.  My son really got into his art project.  He was saying "Choo, Choo" as the tracks appeared.
For kids who are older, try writing the letter "T" on the paper first and review the sound.  As they are going over their paper they can make the "T" sound as they make their "tracks" with their "train".
Here is a song we like to sing. 
Clickety clickety clickety clack
Hear the train coming down the track
Chug chug chug
And up the hill it climbs
Listen to the whistle
 blow (4) times
Choo, Choo, Choo, Choo (changes depending on the number you use)
