We love the idea of creating your own playmats on the floor for kids to drive their cars, planes and trains around on but sometimes they can seem a little small and won't hold a child's attention for longer than it takes you to load the dishes. This diy version is ginormous and super thrifty!

Starting out with a large white painter's tarp from the local hardware store, a blank slate quickly became a super-size raceway for all sorts of things with wheels. The road, bushes, lake, grass and more were all done with spray paint to give a little more interest.

This simple idea is one anyone can do and we're oh so glad to have the inspiration! See more on This Mommy Loves!
