Rainy Day Race Track

I saw this idea while blog hoping a while ago and I can't remember where I saw it but I love this idea!! It is the perfect rainy day activity to do with two little boys.

I started the tape in the middle of our stair case and it goes in front of the couch, loops in a circle, goes around the side table and then back down behind the couch.

Parts of the track have black lines down the center to resemble a road - making the lines was part of the fun for Judah!

We have been using this all morning for cars, balancing, chasing, coloring, rolling - there are so many activities to be done with a roll of painters tape!

The only bad thing about it is that I used Paul's painters tape (sorry babe!!) I think the Dollar Tree sells some and while it's cheap quality it would be perfect for this activity!

This is a great idea. I've put a long piece of wood from our couch to the floor to drive the cars down the ramp. I thought for sure this would be a huge hit with my little one, but it wasn't. Although, if your little ones liked the tape street, I'm sure they'd enjoy a ramp off the couch too.
By the way, I'm really enjoying your blog. Especially all the ideas for crafts and things that you do with your boys.

How neat! It reminds me of the day that, after working at my desk for a few hours, I looked down and found I was in the middle of a rail yard and couldn't move my chair, lol. Little boys are so much fun.
