At Haverty Hollow we believe that the benefits of the train table are similar to building with blocks.
- It requires both gross and fine motor skills.
- It can be utilized by individuals and/or groups.
- All ages enjoy discovering the different shapes and directions of tracks that are available.
- The only limit to your creation is your imagination…
On Friday morning a small group of boys, of different ages, found the train table the place to be. It was decided that the train should go ‘ round and round and round’ as it rode around the train table. Working together the boys discussed what they wanted to do, found the necessary pieces, made adjustments as necessary, and built something together.
Then, the challenge was to see how long they could make a train that could take all the circles, turns, and hills without falling over or breaking apart.
