Train Party Favors

Train Party Favors

Whether you use these favors for a train-themed party, to entertain your own train enthusiast, or adapt them to fit your theme, I hope these ideas come in handy for you and your family!

Train Whistles

I love using birthday parties as an excuse to try my hand at a new crafting method.  For my son’s 2nd birthday, this new technique was pyrography.  Being heavily pregnant and not all together coordinated at the best of times, John was understandably nervous about me burning wood.  All things considered, it was a fairly easy and inexpensive new skill to start (and I only burned myself a couple of times)!

Basically, I printed stencils of our guests’ names and used the all-purpose tip from this kit to burn the outline of each name into the backs of these whistles.  I have a long way to go before feeling proficient in this new craft, but it was a fun new way to personalize a cute favor!

Reusable Coloring Book & Large Crayon Box

After getting a laminated coloring book and dry erase crayons as a gift one Christmas (and using them all over the world as a travel toy), I have loved finding new ways to make and use these.  If you have a little one who loves to color, these really are the gift that keeps on giving!  Check out my tutorials here.

Favor Bag Design

What better way to package train-related goodies than in a bag made to look like a train!  It’s a cheap, easy, and fun way to send the party home with your guests!  Since these are made with paper lunch bags, they could also be used to make a special lunch for your own aspiring conductor.  The tutorial for these bags can be found here (and includes pieces to make the James and Thomas bags).
