October 4, 2013 by Jessica Petersen 1 Comment The first time we used our DIY mini light boxes with wooden train tracks, the Little Engineer immediately saw the stacking potential (which I hadn’t noticed yet).
During our recent visit to the State Fair, the Little Engineer decided to go on his first ever roller coaster. You could use sloping tracks and supports or other blocks to make a similar up-and-down roller coaster track, but the light boxes definitely gave it a carnival flair.
I originally intended to build the track with the low points between the light boxes, but they aren’t quite the right height to make that work.
When the Little Engineer walked into the room and saw what I was doing, he ran and got his battery-operated Thomas and Percy. After sending Thomas and Percy chuffing along the roller coaster track I built for a while, the Little Engineer took it completely apart and made his own design. If you’d like to make your own mini light boxes like ours, or are looking for more train-themed light box or light table ideas, we have you covered.

When it comes to the question of planes, trains or automobiles, the selection of your favourite mode of transportation obviously has to be trains.
He put one light box on top of another and ran off to get our tallest ascending track to send a train rolling down from the top. If you click on one, we will receive a small commission — at no additional cost to you — on anything you buy at Amazon for a certain length of time afterwards. It was such a surprise that my baby was both tall enough and ready to go on a kid roller coaster without us! So I used some of our taller ascending track pieces (you could use multiple regular-sized ascending tracks and track supports) to get up and down from the boxes. That worked out, because it meant the he wasn’t as hands-on with the trains so the tracks got jostled around less on the slippery tops of the light boxes. He stacked all four light boxes on top of each other and created a very steep drop down from them. While playing trains for the last four years, my Little Engineer and I have had a lot of fun and learned so much together.


We thought it would be fun to take that idea and make ourselves a wooden train roller coaster track! But I should have known once we pointed out that a roller coaster was another type of train, he would want to give it a whirl. Then I put track supports on alternating light boxes, so that the track went down to one and then up to the next.
I'm excited to share our discoveries with other people who have kids who love trains in their lives.
