Simple items for lots of fun!

Duct tape is a very useful thing to have about the house. This time it came in handy to transfigure our rug into a roadway for the boys to drive their little cars all over.

I rolled out long strips of duct tape and stuck them to the rug to make a circuit with some cross roads and a car-park at one end. I used a permanent marker to add details to the road, such as marking out the car spaces and placing dashes for the centre lines. L made the boys a car-wash and joined it to the road with another piece of tape.

We used Matchbox and Hot Wheels cars, small CAT diggers and some other small vehicles we found in the toy-box. There were even a few wooden trains riding the roads! T1 particularly liked parking the cars, while T2 made many of them crash. He also used a small bulldozer to move some of the cars off the road. L and A enjoyed using the car track too, and spent a lot of time “washing” cars in the car-wash.

Once we were finished playing, I pulled up the tape and threw it out. There was no sticky residue left on the rug, and we’d had a great time playing cars!
