Thomas The Train Crafts

Paper Plate Thomas The Train Craft

My daughter loves cartoons. She would stay parked in front of the television all day, but I limit her screen time. There are only a few shows that she watches. Her favorite shows are ‘Stella & Sam’ & ‘Julius Jr.’ Since I monitor her television time, it always surprises me when she knows so many characters from other cartoons. Last night she kept talking to me about Percy. I did not know who Percy was. It turned out that Percy was a friend of Thomas the train. “Percy is so cute.” she told me. I was not familiar with Percy, but I know Thomas. I asked my daughter if she wanted to make Thomas & Percy crafts & of course she jumped at it. She chose to make Percy, so I made Thomas. We chose to make paper plate crafts. Here’s how.

What you will need:

Paper plates

Silver paint

Construction paper in blue, black, red & green.

Magic markers



Paint a paper plate in silver & let it dry.


Cut out the shapes for the bodies, eyes, mouths, lights & smoke stacks. (Here were all the pieces used to form Thomas)


Draw in the eyeballs & any details with magic marker.


I cut out all the pieces for Mai’s Percy as well.

Glue all the pieces together to form your characters.

As you can see Mai was very proud of her creation.

    1. That’s funny! In the U.S. it is called Thomas the Train. I have never actually watched him though.

      1. It’s pretty good, although I haven’t watched it for a while. My daughter has had a stint of loving him but it’s worn off. Years ago, my brother was obsessed with it, he knew every train and carriage there was to know! It was really funny. I enjoy watching the older episodes, Ringo Starr tells the story!
