This looks like such a fun and cute craft! I can't wait to try it this year.

This has got to be one of the cutest projects I have ever seen. And it's super easy. I have four grand kids that would really love this. And I am thinking with a little imagination I can make additional train cars to go with it. Thank you so much for offering this idea.

How much fun! These would be awesome to make with children in a Sunday School class while we teach them how to take care of God's Earth by recycling. Other groups that might appreciate these would be scouting groups or 4-H groups as they too learn about recycling. This is certainly creative edible fun!
