Train Connector

Categories: Trains

 You made all those trains, now what…..

I designed a quick and easy way to connect the trains together.  Keep in mind that this design is for a 7 year old kids to build, so all you engineering types please “¡cállate”.

 Step 4:  Cut 2 notches in the middle of the paper, this will allow the train cars to turn.

 Step 5:  Tape the connector to each car from the underside, use at least 2 pieces of tape per car.  Repeat as needed.
