As the children played in the train and we looked at books about steam
trains we noticed that a bell sits on top of the train. I had one hand bell in
my storage room and the children took turns using it.
They rang it and rang it. Luckily it wasn't a loud, clangy sound.
That night I asked my husband if he could create a stand to hang the bell.
This is what he came up with – fantastic!
A string is attached to the bell and is strung through the roof to the inside.
It makes a lovely ‘ding’ sound.
Choo, choo! Ding-ding! Off we go!
