Train Table, Here We Are....


If any of you have Thomas & Friends fans in your house...you know just what kind of project it is to set up a new branch line....getting all the brides, tunnels, buildings, etc. to fit just perfectly where Little man would like to see them placed. My Little Man still enjoys playing with his Thomas trains and tracks...but if there is only a wrecked Branch Line....(Thanks to Little Miss) What fun is it to play with?

On occasion Little Man will ask me or Daddy to help to build him a new branch line....let me just say it is a rather tricky task!! You have to clear the table...which Little Man and Little Miss usually do together. Then you have to get Little Miss engaged in a toy and to find somewhere else to play...or she plays train table wrecking ball...LOL LOL Next you have to try to set up a branch line making sure the tracks stay within the perimeter of the table and all connect so the trains can drive all about the tracks!!

Hubby and I have had years of practice....but still each and every time it is a tricky, yet fun experience!! Little Man is also a big help in the process too. He can sometimes find just the right piece to make the loop complete!! Plus...he is ever so excited to play with the finished Branch Line!!!

So this weeks Tackle is building a new branch line for Little Man!! He has been asking for a few days now....we have just been a bit busy to seem to get to it. But no more....to the train table we head!!!

Here is Little Man's room in the midst of the train table tackle:



Here is the nice, clean, empty table:


And....TaDa....The Long Awaited Island of Sodor Replica Branch Line:

Isn't it pretty!!! I am proud of it....as is Little Man!!!

Love your tackle! We could stand to do that around here too...not only are the tracks a wreck, but there is some serious dust collecting on the table.

It's very pretty and you should be very proud. Quality time spent is the the best thing of all though!

Great job! Glad to know I am not the only one that realizes how tough building the train can be. I love when they play with it for hours afterwards.
