Practical LifeTrain Lacing Card
I found this basic train outline by searching Google images, printed it and backed it on cardstock. I punched holes around the outside and included a lacing string.
This whistle from OP Taylor's can be used for pretend train rides, or for sound activities.
There are so many uses for stickers - decorating drawings, matching or sorting different types of stickers based on shapes or colors, or matching stickers with corresponding train toys.
Stencils are a great pre-writing activity. This stencil book from Mast General Store has six pre-cut stencils of different train cars, so it can also be used to compare different types of cars, shapes, sizes, etc.

Chugger 3-Part Cards
I made these 3-part cards with the blank Montessori template that I have used before and pictures of the Chuggington characters I found on Google images. I backed and laminated the cards, then put them in a pencil case with some ideas for using the cards (memory / concentration cards, matching).
MathematicsPattern Matching Trains (Cars)
I found this "Car'd" Game on Toddler Approved (where you can find the free printable templates). I colored the templates, laminated them, and punched a hole in the corner of each card so I could put them all on a key ring. I knew that M's friend already had a ton of trains of various colors to use with this activity.
I printed two copies of this clip art train, and cut one of the pictures into nine "puzzle" pieces. The full picture could be used as a background to match the puzzle pieces, as a guide to help assemble the puzzle, or can be put away for more of a challenge.
