I may be a four year old, but let me tell you, I am the expert at making train tracks. I can make trains and train tracks out of just about anything - mommy's curtains ties, my kitchen set, pillows, threads and needles, my sister's pants...But today I will help you make train tracks out in the wild, using natural resources.
The key to this is a good attitude. Smile :)
You will need sticks, leaves, a train...
and most importantly, your imagination. Just let your imagination run wild and you'll know what I mean.
ah, there she comes. You may be bothered by a little sister who wants to 'help'. Oh yes. She'll come like a thunderstorm and step on everything. This can be very frustrating....but, be wise in handling this delicate matter.
Or even better, send her on a mission away from your precious tracks. Let her find the leaves for you. Then when she delivers, check each leaf carefully. Tell her "This one is rusty! find a clean one".
then it's time to play. Enjoy!
