Toy Train

I bought Middle a Creativity For Kids Make Your Own Train kit earlier this week.
We spent this morning building it. 
This sort of thing is right up his alley since he likes loves anything with wheels and he loves building/working with his hands.  

The train before Middle glued on the wheels.

Middle is a fairly rambunctious little squirt but when it comes to projects like this one, he can actually sit still, concentrate and work quietly for a quite a long time.
Which means a nice break for Momma ;)

Painting his masterpiece.

This is the finished product.   The paint job is completely custom xD
I helped him spell out his name and then he picked out the number 4 sticker (for his age) and the heart. 

It has now been run into every wall in our house at high speed and it's still holding together.  I'm fairly impressed, I think it was definately worth the $3.
