My co-teacher made this awesome ticket machine for our train ride area. She used a box we had from when our co-worker made a gas pump, so it already had the hole cut out. She added some destinations on the front and on the sides we made little interactive matching games.
On one side, there was a train match. Once again, it was just pictures printed from online, some posterboard, and contact paper. Then some velcro strips hot-glued on to both the background picture and the matching one.
We used the same technique and made some ticket matches. The ticket pictures are all from different countries. We printed some other tickets and had them sitting in a wipes bin because the kids loved playing with the tickets.
