Great ideas which gave me inspiration to create my own train. However, I was a little disappointed in the hand drawn items for the price I paid. Maybe I missed that in the the description. Was hoping to have more precise work for my 3rd graders. I usually never buy products without pictures and have to say the prompts in the preview were the only thing that I could use from the purchase. Oh well, you live and you learn!

My kids loved making the trains and were so motivated with the writing activity that went inside of the train cars. I LOVED the hand-drawn templates... I feel that they're more unique!! :) I LOVE your glyphs, but I do try to find them when they are on sale. These projects turned out adorable- I recieved so many compliments from other teachers and mentioned your products. Parents loved them when they visited during conference time. Yes- the trains do take a while for young children to assemble, but as does any intricate craft/project!! Keep the great glyph/writing activities coming!! :)))

I loved the idea and the finished product made a mice holiday display in our hallway. It was very usable and turned our great; however I do have to say I was taken back by the hand drawn patterns for the price. But they worked and looked great-so I'm happy.
