Transportation Wrap-Up


Welcome to a new series about Transportation on Mustard Seed Family.  From April-June I will be sharing a variety of activities for your toddler/preschooler.  This series includes art projects, sensory play, outside activities, and field trips.

Today I’ll be sharing a field trip to the Minnesota Streetcar Museum.

Trolley Ride


There is a Streetcar line that is run by volunteers in Minneapolis.  It goes from Lake Harriet to Lake Calhoun, and it only costs $4 for our family to ride!

We bought our tokens, and waited for the trolley to come.  It runs every 15 minutes, so it wasn’t a long wait.  Calvin made some friends and tried to steal their candy.  That little sneaky Pete!

Ella got to see the tracks and we watched the trolley ride across them.


The inside of the trolley was just as you would expect it to look a hundred years ago.  The tokens were the original ones used!

As soon as the trolley started driving, the kids were hooked.  It even tooted its horn while going under a bridge.  That made all the kids laugh.


Overall this is a great way to end our transportation unit.  Tune in next week for what’s next on Mustard Seed Family.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this activity, and thanks for stopping by!
