I have two little boys. They love all things transportation. Our home is always filled with sounds of planes, trains, and you guessed it cars. Ha! I know that’s not what you thought I was going to say :D. We have a pretty impressive train track stash, thanks to IKEA. There are weeks where our days are filled with coming up with a new set up for those track pieces. How long can we make it? How many twists and turns can we add? But playing with trains gets a bit old after a while. I want to have the same experience with roads for cars and I figured that I could create an easy DIY race track tutorial to share with you here on the blog! I mean who really likes shelling out the cash for Hot Wheels tracks? Most of the time the tracks are too complicated for my boys to put together by themselves, and they can only be used in one way. I wanted, nay, NEEDED something for them to use their imaginations while playing with their cars. I had this idea, put it to work, and made it happen! Kids can use their imagination to their hearts content and the best part, unlike those duct tape tracks I’ve seen all over blogland’s floors, these are REUSABLE! What to make some?

What you’ll need for this DIY race track tutorial:

First I cute off both flaps. Then I decided I wanted to make my roads 4 inches wide. So I marked, using the measuring tape, every four inches along the short side of the middle section of poster. Then I needed a straight edge so I just used one of the flaps I cute off as a guide. Use what’s on hand, so much easier than free-handing.

Once everything was marked I cut the strips. Word to the wise, make sure not to cut your board on a surface like linoleum or hardwood. Chances are you’ll accidentally cut your floor. While I was cutting mine I had a sad thought of accidentally cutting through to the floor and having a huge gash to deal with. I decided to cut one of the flaps into strips as well.

Next I cut out circles for the corners. To do this I used a piece of paper that was 8 inches long to more a circumference. If you have a compass, or want to use a make-shift one, use it. It will be a lot simpler. My circles didn’t come out very clean, but I wasn’t too bothered by it.

Cut your circles into four equal pieces.

I marked all of the dashed white lines next.

After everything was marked I cut the long strips down into lengths of 6, 9, 12, and 18 inches. That way they could have a little more variety in their constructing. I ended up getting about 46 pieces!

Now let you’re little person see what you just made and you’ll hear what I heard “It’s a race track!” “Wow!” “This is so cool!” “Thanks, Mamma!”
