Carpet Raceway Activity

by Trish Kuffner, author of The Preschooler's Busy Book

On a rainy day, distract the kids by turning your carpet into a speedway for this fun activity.


Materials

  • Books or scraps of wood
  • Matchbox cars or other toys with wheels

Directions

  1. Make a raceway or train track on a carpet by laying down books of equal thickness side by side to make a smooth lane, or use pieces of plywood or two-by-fours. (Your raceway can be any length and can be straight or have turns.)
  2. This will transform the carpet into a smooth surface for racing toys with wheels.
