My boys love cars and racing. And creating this DIY Car race game for them to play was so easy! You can use any cars you already have! My boys are huge fans of Lightning Mcqueen, so he was definitely the main star of the race!
The idea for this car race game came from last week's book called Sputter, Sputter, Sput! LM loves books about cars, so you may notice that theme often. As we read, we came to this page in the book......
.....and it gave me a good idea for this fun game!
- I used 2 pieces of black construction paper and cut them into 8 rectangles.
- I used a white crayon to draw the street lines down the middle of each of them.
- I used yellow construction paper to cut out the lines, and used double stick tape to stick them on the roads, creating squares out of the roads.
- I used clear contact paper to "laminate" the roads so they wouldn't get bent in our game.
The game is simply to get from one end of the road to the other. We used toy cars for our game pieces and a big yellow toy dice. The funnest part is that since the 8 road rectangles are not connected, we can change the game-board each time we play!
AND it's great to practice counting & numbers too!
