Train Brain

Lincoln loves trains. Lincoln loves to build. As a result, we’ve had a lot of homemade trains around these parts recently.

Lincoln will build a train out of whatever material is available at that moment. Here’s one built out of pieces of our marble run with a cup for a smoke stack:

This one is made of the pieces of a bingo game:

And these are, obviously, crayons.

This one, made of Lincoln Logs, has the added feature of a bonnet smoke stack.

More then anything though, of course, Lincoln builds trains out of Legos and Duplos. They must always have a cow catcher (we’ve been calling it a cattle guard, but now we’re worried that may be incorrect) because that is his favorite part of a train.

(This last one has smoke coming out of the smoke stack as an added bonus.)

Lincoln knows now that I take pictures of his trains so he runs and finds me whenever he finishes one.

I'm so impressed! I don't think I could make trains on the spot like that. Bravo Lincoln.
