Build a quick and easy toy car racing track with your little one
Looking for something fun to do with your little one over the long weekend? Why not build a fun backyard running track? You don’t even need a huge garden with rolling lawns to make a mini running track. No matter the size of your space, we have a nifty trick to help you build the racetrack of your little one’s dreams. Read on!
Mini Car Race Track Using Pool Noodle
Cut a pool noodle or PVC pipe in half for an instant, hassle-free dual running track. Decorate with this checkered racing ribbon and flags. So ! Let the party begin.
Plywood racing ramp
Now that’s what your little one will love – watching their toy car come down the ramp! All you need is some flexible birch plywood (you should get it from Timbercity), a few brackets, and a plastic buckle.
Semi-permanentaFrtrace track using edgers
If you want to build a more permanent fixture, cinder blocks and paving edging make great adaptable roads that can be as basic or complex as you want. For minimal maintenance, fill the interior space with playground mulch or bark chips. Use sand in these spaces to form mini sandboxes, giving extra sensory appeal and further fueling your child’s imagination.
Cement Garden Running Track
A cement backyard running track is perfect for mini speed junkies and thrill seekers (and parents who won’t mind having this in their backyard all the time).
