How to Make a Graham Cracker Cookie Train Recipe
My kids love to read fun books about trains. I’m featuring two of our favorite train books in the photos below. And if you’ve never seen it, you should really check out Dinosaur Train on PBS. Well this little fun summer activity was inspired by the books and the show, and is a great way to keep little hands and minds busy in a way that helps them learn about building in 3D.
Plus, I can see how this can replace making gingerbread houses at Christmastime, it’s less expensive and more practical. And, I’m taking photos of our family creating this Graham Cracker Cookie Train Recipe to enter us into the NABISCO Summer Snack ‘N Share sweepstakes!

How to Make a Graham Cracker Cookie Train Recipe
This recipe is amazing because it serves two functions:
- It creates a fun activity the whole family can enjoy.
- It can be used as a teaching tool to teach construction, assembly, and about three-dimensional objects
Total Bonus: This recipe creates a tasty, fun snack!
Ingredients for this: Graham Cracker Cookie Train Recipe
- 1 Box of Family Size OREO cookies NILLA Wafers
- 1 Box of NILLA Wafers
- 1 Box of Honey Maid Grahams
- 1 Bag of Swedish Fish
- 1 Bag of Frosting – Blue
- 1 Bag of Frosting – White
Directions for this easy recipe: No-Bake Fruit and Nut Cupcake Cookies
Step 1: Arrange Train Cars. Imagine your train cars and side walls. Use graham crackers for train base, sides, walls and top. Create a dry fit pattern.
Step 2: Arrange the Wheels. I placed four OREO cookies around the train car as wheels.
Step 3: Glue everything together. Use the white frosting in much the same way that you would use it to build a gingerbread house. Add icing “glue” around each edge and use stacks of cookies to hold pieces in place until they dry. Add extra supports inside the train cars for extra support.
Step 4: Create the “water” car. Add blue frosting and half fill the car with pretend “water” for the Swedish fish.
Step 6: Add the Wheels. Add the OREO cookies on as wheels by carving out a small rectangular pie shape to fit the sidewalls into. Add extra icing to act as glue.
Step 7: Add the smokestack. We used NILLA Wafers.
Step 8: Add the Swedish Fish. AND Voila! You have these adorable Graham cracker cookie cars!
