Looking to get your kids outside even more this summer? While toy vehicles are often an indoor activity, if you create an outdoor space for driving them you can turn them into a great backyard game. This tutorial will show you how to make some sweet road ramps that your kids can configure any way they want, racing their vehicles all over the outdoors.
Chelsey at Buggy & Buddy created these small wooden road pieces that can be used as ramps, bridges, or just as a surface for cars to drive on in the grass. With a bunch of them, kids can create innumerable tracks for their cars over pretty much any surface (ok, maybe not the pool).
While Chelsey used the standard dotted yellow line, you could mix it up and even teach your kids a little about traffic laws: solid double yellow means no passing! If you have a wider board, create multiple lanes, and if you're really fancy, include a chicken lane down the middle. And then get to driving!
