Halloween With Hobbycraft #1: Halloween Foam Train!

We’ve teamed up with Hobbycraft this Halloween and we couldn’t be more excited! We love the idea of hand-made Halloween decorations so it wasn’t hard to get involved with Hobbycraft and their amazing (and inexpensive) crafts.
Molly had her heart set on a spooky Halloween Foam Train Kit as soon as she saw it on their website. It costs £2 and it comes with all the foam pieces needed to make a cute little ghost train. 

Now, I’m not going to lie, Molly sometimes found the assembly tricky and a little frustrating. However, this meant I get fully involved with helping her and she also had to deal with this feeling if frustration and work through it. So when it came to popping the green top on, I was the one who waited patiently for the glue to dry, but she sat with me and assembled the orange segments and once everything was assembled Molly attached the spooky foam stickers.

The stickers helped certain parts stay together, and this gave Molly a lot of satisfaction. She loves little crafty things like this, it means she can use it for her little dogs and other mini-toys to ride the train!

I think this is a really lovely one-on-one craft ideal for an adult and a child to build together, with lots of tea and patience too!

We loved this little craft, keep an eye on the blog for more Hobbycraft Halloween goodness!
