Lots and lots of kids, both boys and girls alike love trains. A train party, can be the perfect party idea!

Read on for fun ideas to use with your party:

Train Party Invitations & Decorations

Invitations can be store-bought, or you can make your own invitations out of cardstock. If making your own, you can use paper cut into the shape of a train engine, use a photograph of your child riding a train, or even create a "train ticket" for a good time!

For decorations, bold, primary colors work great. Lots of balloons will immediately make your party space more festive. Reds, Blues, Yellows and Green - focus on these bright, happy colors.
