Yarn Toy Car Tracks (Practical Mondays #11)


A toy car track is an extremely loose concept. You can make simple ones, multilayered ones, and many times you don’t even need em since they’re all in the imagination. The worse ones are the ones taped on the ground. I made an elaborate one in my previous house and left it on for a week or two. I swear my maid was the sweetest person ever who would scrape off bit by bit every day to finally get rid of it after a whole week! 

I’m steering clear of tape. However great the quality!

But in case you’re looking for Super-Easy, Not-Messy, Use & Throw one, use yarn! We use some some from time to time and love it! They can be made by kids themselves *and* cleaned up them too!

Feature worth a Peek from previous Practical Mondays!


Rhythm, verse, sophisticated vocabulary & power of words in creating imagery: Poetry takes language skills to a different level. Here are some good resources of Poems and a really cool tool (with printable!) which helps focus on specific lines (I had something like this growing up!)

  1. I'm going to have to try this with my grandson. He is always rolling his cars all over and looking for ways to build tracks. Great idea.

  2. Such a cute idea, and so easy to do! It's supposed to rain here all week, so this is perfect timing! I'm going to need all the indoor activities I can find!

  4. We used to do this! My boys loved it! They also used their large building blocks to create "roads." I miss the days of that kind of chaos!

  13. There are still things you should know about motorized cars and your kid, and how much you will spend. You could start with click here , or you could spend thousands of dollars.
