Animal Train


  • Cardboard box
  • Red spray paint
  • Various solid colored paper plates
  • Black tape (painter’s, masking, or electrical will work)
  • Preassembled animal masks
  • Hot glue gun


  1. Spray paint a large cardboard box red.

  2. Lay out your animal masks on one side of your red box.

  3. Create a “jail” for your animals. Start out by making a box with your black tape, and then add 3 or 4 vertical crossbars.

  4. Attach the “wheels” of your train by hot gluing paper plates near the bottom of your cardboard box.

  5. Feel free to attach several cars together to make a train that can run down your entire table!
