Yoghurt pot craft: how to make a train in 5 minutes

Simple children's activity

Just save a few yoghurt pots for this quick and easy train craft. We love activities that use items you're likely to have at home, so we added toddler food pouch lids to make the wheels (you could use milk bottle lids if your kids are past the pouch stage.) While your children are busy, take a moment to relax. You'll be pleased to hear this activity is really easy to clear up, too!

Yoghurt pot train step-by-step guide

  1. Glue tissue paper around each yoghurt pot.

  2. Build the train. Make a hole through the sides of two pots (big enough to thread the straw through). Thread the straw through the sides of the two pots and in through the bottom of the other one (you’ll need to lie the last pot down).

  3. Glue another pot to this one to make the front of the train. Then glue the last pot on top of that one to make the chimney.
  4. Glue the lids to the sides of the pots to make wheels. Add some number stickers as the finishing touch.
