Choo! Choo! Roman's Two!
For Roman's 2nd Birthday, we knew just the theme! T-R-A-I-N-S! He loves loves loves TRAINS! As the children arrived they came up the walk way on the railroad track. They had to go through the "Roman Crossing" to get to the first station!
Station 1: Boarding Zone
Here the children got their hats, bandanas, and could have their hand/face painted.
Station 2: Paint-A-Train
Here the children each had a little wooden train that they painted. They had a blast and really enjoyed making their trains uniquely them!
We put train decorations all over the house! It was like trains exploded all over the place!
Station #3 was the Train Puzzle Activity. We had printed train pictures off on cardstock and cut them out like a puzzle. Then we waxed the back and had the kids put the puzzle together on the wall! It was challenging, but fun for most!:)
Station #4 was train stories! We chose a few train stories to enjoy.
Station #5 was "Build-A-Train". Here the children created trains from candy.
Station #6 was the Train Ride! We made it into a scavenger hunt, where the kids had to find the letters R-O-M-A-N along the train ride. As they found them, they plucked them from trains.
Station #6 was the Dining Car:
The birthday cake was a train with separate cars loaded with goodies on them!
Next came opening presents!
All in all, it was a fun fun day!
