Masking Tape Race Track

by Maria on March 30, 2011

What do you get when you take a rainy day, add two rolls of tape, 30 minutes of your precious time, and all the cars/trucks/boats and airplanes you all ready have floating around your house?

…….Two very happy children who just found out their mom is a rockstar.

A friend of mine mentioned that her cousin made a fun track all around her house out of masking tape so her boys could drive their cars on it. My boys are car/truck lovers and I new that something like that could keep them entertained for a verrrrry long time. I had to try it.

Our Family recently got some little tiny boats that the boys love, love, love, so I wanted to somehow incorporate water into the race track. I picked up a roll of blue painters tape and this is what I came up with. I started to run out of the blue tape and still had a significant amount of space left, so I turned it into a parking lot and that is where they park their fleet of airplanes.

This little project was actually fun to create and I really did feel like a rock star. My eyes have been opened to all kinds of masking tape fun and I can’t wait to try out some other ideas, like hopscotch, a flat play house or targets on the wall they can through nerf footballs at. If  you have any ideas pass them on.

P.S. I HAVE NO ARTISTIC TALENT at all so if I can do this ANYONE can do this.

Materials Needed:

• Masking tape (colors of your choice)

• Time

• Kids and Toy Cars/Trucks/Boats/Airplanes  :)

The great thing about this, is that’s you can go as big or as small as you want to. There are so many different ways you could build a track. A fun thing to do would be to make the track start or end at the spot where your kids normally park their toys.  Have fun with it and send us a picture if you make a masking tape masterpiece. I would love to see your creativeness with Masking tape :).
