Yoghurt Pot Train

We have found another use of our used empty yoghurt pots rather than just throw them into the recycle bin.

We made a train!

You will need:
Yoghurt pots (clean, empty)
Bottle lids
Glue and double sides sticky dots
Straws

Instructions:

Take three pots which will be your engine. Glue the opened side to another on the opened side and then glue the third pot on top of the pots. So it will look like a L shape! (A bit hard to explain, sorry!)

Glue some bottle lids in place with the sticky dots, these will be the wheels.

Do the above on the other pots you have, however many carriages you want, we did two!

Connect each carriage and engine up with straws. Make a hole and push through the straw.

My explanation isn’t very good, it really is simple. It is probably best for you just to follow the picture below.

You can now paint it in want colour you want, Joseph wanted to keep his one as yoghurt pots (not sure why!)

Hope you enjoy this simple easy craft.
