Train Rocks

This fun idea is perfect for a train obsessed kiddo and trust us MUCH less costly than a real eco-friendly train set. Plus, you can draw tracks wherever you like that go wherever you like too – get creative and use paper, or draw tracks outside in the dirt with a stick. If you use small rocks and clean the rocks well, these little train cars would also look sweet on a birthday cake.

Strawberry Rocks

Apparently, if you paint rocks like strawberries and place them round your real strawberry plants in the garden, birds will get annoyed trying to eat them, thus avoid your real berries too. That’s one good reason to make berry rocks, but these also look great in a play kitchen and your child could make other play food with rocks too.
