Train painting fun!

Last week, my husband picked up some unpainted wooden train toys. We all worked together to get them ready for playtime.

Big Bear painting a tanker car

Big Bear decided he wanted an apple-grape juice car, so he started by painting his tanker dark purple.

Little Bear painting a tanker car

Little Bear is a chocoholic, so we decided to make his into a chocolate syrup car and he painted his tanker a light brown.

Completed tanker cars

Then Mama and Papa took over and did some detail work. He finished up the apple-grape juice tanker, and I completed the chocolate syrup tanker.

Boys and their tankers

And now there are some very unique tankers being shunted about on the train table as well as a pair of very happy boys.
