Morning Drag Race

Monday, January 26, 2015

A while back I found this DIY tutorial and ever so hinting-ly sent the cute idea to my Mom.. I thought it would be a great, independent, quite activity for a certain soon-to-be-big-brother.

My Mom ever-so-generously made one for T and he has enjoyed it very much!!
Each number is a little pocket that you can 'park' the cars in. It folds in half, then half again, and velcros shut. It's a little bulky when all the cars are in there, but could still easily fit in a little one's backpack and tag-along to church or a restaurant for entertainment.
It definitely came in handy while nursing, I would ask T to park the red car in #4, etc., etc.. I love that you can incorporate number and color learning and that it's a simple activity encouraging creative play. 

THANK YOU Grandma!! I know it was a pain in the @$$ to make.

  3. How cool is that! I may have to get my grandma to make a girly one for B. My dad and brothers have all races and insist she will too. Haha
