Make Your Carnival Memorable With a Kid Party Train


Recent Posts:

Spring carnival season is approaching quickly. If you are organizing a carnival for your school or organization, you are probably feeling a lot of pressure to provide your guests with a fun, family-friendly experience. There are many ways to go about this. One option is to rent a kid’s party train. Train rides are always a hit with little ones, and renting one couldn’t be easier when you do it through The Mini Express.

Looking to expand upon the train rental to provide the kids with even more railroad fun? Consider setting up a “train station” where children can create train-themed crafts or purchase snacks with a railroad theme.

Here are a few ideas of things to include in your “train station”.

Train Cookies

Make and sell train-shaped cookies. Provide people who purchase cookies with frosting, sprinkles, and other treats to decorate their yummy baked good. What could be better than trains and cookies combined?

Train Coloring

Provide visitors with free train coloring sheets and crayons or markers to make them their own. There are plenty of printable coloring sheets online. This is a fun activity that will help draw people into your tent.

Contribution Train

By giving every child the materials to create their own train car, you will end your event with a huge collection of unique box cars, cabooses, and engines. Use these to create a long community train to display in your school or other facility. This activity could be used as a fundraiser if you care to charge to design a car.


Playing train-themed music can really help set the mood in your train tent. Your playlist might include “I’ve Been Working on the Railroad”, “Little Red Caboose”, or “Down at the Station” to name a few.

Of course, the highlight of your train area would be the awesome kid party train ride! If you are considering renting a train for your event, please contact us at The Mini Express. We would be happy to help!
