Number Train

A very simple number line train I made ages ago, but had been "lost" in a lox for a bit found in the Christmas clear up and popped it on the shelf today and it was a huge hit! It is simple to make, with all shapes being cut from funky foam (EVA Foam) and simply glued onto pegs with a hot glue gun. The track is piece of strong thick elastic I obtained from a scrapstore, but I'm sure other materials would work equally well. Obviously this is a great number sequencing activity for children who love trains, and I wish i'd have thought of it years ago when working with certain children with autism who would have loved this activity.
