There are lots of fun things to do on a train. You can play games, build with Legos ,the list goes on and on. But to do all these things, first you must prepare.
You should pack:
A coloring book and crayons or markers
Some good books
A small pack of Legos or K’nex or anything else you like to build with
Some small travel games like travel Checkers or travel Chess (Jenga doesn’t work very well)
Some snacks and drinks – I like M&Ms, peanut butter crackers, chips…
I liked traveling on a train because the sound of the train going over the tracks helped me go to sleep. Also if you’re on an overnight train you can eat at the dining car. The food is almost always good.
