It’s that time of year again, the time of year Gabe is asking regularly when we will be going back to see Thomas The Tank Engine in real life. He is my big train lover, everything is trains he spends half of his day building train tracks and playing with his Thomas and Friends Trains! Which makes this the perfect event for him to be able to attend.
Last year was our first year attending the event, and I was so pleasantly surprised as to how many different things there are for the kids to do there. Most of the events are located outside which is the best spot for kids to be able to run and get their energy out as well. This year we will be attending Day Out With Thomas, again at the Huckleberry Railroad in Flint, Michigan.
The amount of fun activities for the kids was amazing, and we quickly decided last year that we needed to get there earlier just to be able to enjoy all of the different attractions. So this year we will be getting there earlier in the day and spend the day exploring the old town and attractions they have to offer as well.
There are quite a few activities to enjoy when you attend Day Out With Thomas some of them are:
- 40 Minute ride on Thomas The Train
- Meet Sir Topham Hatt
- Video Viewing
- Live Music
- Imagination Station: Stamps, temporary tattoos, hands on arts and crafts, train tables, coloring sheets.
- Giant Maze
- Meet Mike The Knight
I have been provided with some fun Thomas and Friends activity pages to give your train loving kiddos, there are 3 different Thomas and Friends coloring pages as well as 2 different printable puzzles. I was not the creator of these printables, if you would like more printable pages head over to the Thomas and Friends site where they offer printables of most of the engines and more!
