Thomas the Tank Engine

I held a "Thomas the Tank Engine is a zoo train" Party for my two sons as they turned (2 & 3). I had tons of ideas for this party but my efforts were quite minimal as we had just moved countries and had not really settled yet. We minimized the effort by holding it at the zoo and walked around in a line as a train to entertain the boys. Since I don't have a lot to offer for this party, here are a few original ideas and some ideas from Blog searching.


I made this invitation myself but here are a few favorites: easyinvitations, CBDesignCollection, priyasdesign.
