Art Using Train Tracks

Train Track Drawings

In my last blog post, I reviewed the book Old Tracks, New Tricks.  It is a super cute and creative book.

Old Tracks New Trick


The book itself is good for up to about 1st or 2nd grade, in my opinion.  The kids at my school saw me drawing this train track picture and some of the 3rd graders wanted to try it.  I’m thinking 1st through 3rd grade might be best for this art project.  I will test it with the Kindergartners and let you know if they are able to do it.

The steps are simple and fun!  Lay the train tracks one at a time on to your paper.  Trace lightly with pencil.
