Easy 10 Minute Toddler #Craft
I often find it difficult to conjure up good family craft ideas when the age gap of my children is four years. My seven year old daughter has always been the crafty one and takes it very serious. Unfortunately my two year old son has never had much interest, unless it involves a massive mess or some sort of destruction. Needless to say, we always have to dig a bit deeper and get more creative with crafts when it comes to him. With a hot and humid day and air quality warnings buzzing on the news, the kids and I found ourselves stuck in the house today. My daughter immediately began working on a wonderful book, drawing out beautiful illustrations, while my son proceeded to rip up construction paper and throw it at the dog. I quickly scooped up the paper and sat on the floor with him, where I only had little time to think up a craft before a tantrum was in full swing. With a little toy car gripped in the palm of his hand, the answer was right there in front of me… a race track! And so began our easy ten minute toddler craft.
- Construction paper
This craft is pretty self explanatory and can be anything you want really! I went ahead and stapled 4 pieces of construction paper together for our track. I then cut out long strips of paper for our road and glued them onto our track. Lastly, I drew the street lines to give it that final touch. Most importantly, we made it official and gave the car track a name… “Roman’s Driving School!”
My son has been playing with this car track all day! This craft literally took us all of ten minutes and it’s no hassle to make again… if your crazy, destructive two year old is anything like mine and decides to use it to play tug of war with the dog…
