I painted three thin sheets of cardboard using black paint and a kiddie sponge roller.
I cut each sheet into different pieces. Out of the first I cut some short roads.
Out of the second I cut some long roads.
And out of the last one I cut four semi-circular roads for making into roundabouts and curved corners.
Then I cut a stack of small rectangles from white card. I needed twice this many in the end.
I then cut two of the semi-circular pieces in half to make four smaller pieces, as the big ones didn’t make tight enough bends. I kept two the original size for making into a roundabout.
And here it is set up in one combination with a few of Cakie’s cars and tractors ready for some imaginative play! She will be able to set it up in endless different ways and we may add some buildings from boxes and other play-scence items using Duplo and Playmobil 123 in order to increase the possibilities.
This was done quickly and without measuring, rulers and accuracy. If you wanted to do this *properly* it would make a really lovely low budget Christmas gift. Just package it beautifully in a shiny, black gift box with a packet of colourful cars for playing with!
