Before long, it will be time for Month of the Young Child® celebrations. Will your California based organization’s chapters be participating in them this year? If so, members in the Riverside, Los Angeles, San Bernardino and Orange Counties may want to consider hosting an outdoor, family friendly event that includes train rentals. At The Mini Express, we offer train rentals to those areas. Our spotless, colorful trains are safe for all age groups to ride in and run completely on electricity. They also come with a built-in sound system. With enough advance notice, it could possibly be used to broadcast Month of the Young Child® public service announcements or children’s music. Your organization’s chapter members, however, would need to provide the custom audio. The one-hour packages include an 18 passenger train, congenial conductor, train set-up and removal. Train rentals that exceed the one-hour time limit may be pre-arranged, availability permitting. It is also imperative to note that the passenger capability mentioned above is based on all of the riders being children. If all adults opt to ride the train instead, it may accommodate up to 12 passengers at a time. To incorporate our train rentals into your Month of the Young Child® celebrations further, consider adding train pony beads to the holiday’s traditional purple ribbon symbol. They are often available through online craft stores like BeadTin. Most of the time, the train pony beads come in assorted colors and sell for less than $1 a pack. Each pack typically contains 10 train pony beads in a single color. You may also want to consider investing in clear acrylic train favor boxes and filling them up with purple candies. The boxes tend to be sold through retailers like BeauCoup. Afterward, you could dress up the bottoms of the clear containers with self-adhesive stickers featuring your organization’s logo or Month of the Young Child® related information. To learn more and secure a train rental for Month of the Young Child® celebrations, please contact us at The Mini Express. We’d love to help make your Month of the Young Child® event a press worthy success.
