Masking Tape Fun #1: A Boy and His Cars
In our house, there's nothing like masking tape to spur on a bit of imagination. And at less than a dollar per roll, who can argue with that? It's also very easy to peel off of anything, which makes it very mom friendly.
This post is the first of a series called Masking Tape Fun, where I will showcase various crazy and imaginative things my children have done with masking tape.
The other day, I laid out this tape road map for the kids. Ethan (3 yrs.) drove cars on it for at least an hour, but it was Daryn (just turned 5) who spent nearly the entire day down there.
He decided the TV/printer stand was a hospital, so we made a "drive through" for the ambulance and a large parking lot.
We used some of the larger toys, like the microwave and the toddler toolbench, for houses. Notice the giant pet hamster? Don't you wish you had one in your front yard?
We also made squiggly roads leading out to a couple barns (one from the Uno Moo! game and one from a Moon Dough set).
A few months ago, before Christmas, we went a bit more simple and just created a small parking lot.
If your kidlets are into vehicles, they may just love this idea.
