As we were finishing off the Christmas ABC Art Book, one of my son’s friends asked me to make a train art book. As I knew that F would like it too, I was happy to oblige! Out of necessity this book has many pictures to complete, rather than blank pages. I’m aiming this at kids 3-6, and I wouldn’t expect them to be able to draw many of the items that correspond to the letters. But there are lots of ways to color in pictures – try mixing it up by using a range of crayons, colored pencils, marker pens, watercolor paints and acrylic paints. A full list of picture credits are given at the end of this post.Train ABC Art Book - free printable from craftulate.com

So you’ll need to grab the FREE printable from the Craftulate Shop. Once downloaded, print out the book and bind it together however you’d like. You could use split rings or to make life easier you could store them in a binder or use book rings – they are available in color or silver versions!

Here’s a list of all the letter pages included in the book and some tips for completing them.
