Today my husband and I took our son to A Day Out with Thomas for an early birthday celebration. Matthew is a HUGE Thomas enthusiast! Matthew is not alone in his love of Thomas. I know I have quite a few kids on my caseload who are fans of the #1 blue engine as well! In honor of Matthew's special day and upcoming birthday, I've created a Thomas game for you!
Here we are as Thomas was backing away from the station:

This game is a variation of the Cookin' Cookies game I found at Target a few years ago. Here's the link to the original game on Amazon. Cookin' Cookies is one of the all times favorites of the kids I service. Basically, each child gets a recipe with 5 ingredients. The ingredients are also pictured on the back of the cookies. The kids use the spoons (with suction cups on them) to pick up a cookie. The first one to get all of their ingredients wins. There are also rotten eggs mixed in. If you get one of these, you lose a turn! I often use the spoons to have the kids pick up their articulation cards (they'll hold onto pretty much anything that's laminated!).
Here's the Thomas variation:
Each child gets a Train Schedule with six trains on it:
There are smaller cards with the corresponding trains:
If you'd like, you can print blank tickets on the back of these train cards (sheet of tickets included in download):
You play in the same manner as you would Cookin' Cookies (but without spoons!). Don't get stuck at a railroad crossing, or you'll lose a turn!
The fist player to collect all six trains is the winner!
Grab the game here.
Do you have kids (your own or on your caseload) who love Thomas? If so, I hope they love the game!
