Race Track Craft Idea
Moving day is here! Seriously – the movers are here and I’m hiding in a corner trying to avoid the chaos. Seriously – this is my least favorite part of the PCS journey and my laptop is my solitude at this point. UGH.
Anyways – before we hit the road in a few short days, I wanted to share a quick and inexpensive DIY “toy” idea I recently came up with to entertain my son while we move this month.
As you may have noticed on the blog, I’m a lover of wooden craft sticks and this Popsicle Stick Race Track idea is my latest way to use up those one million popsicle sticks I have inherited in the past year.
So without further ado – here is how I made this awesome Popsicle Stick Race Track that is perfect for little boys to drive their cars on, rearrange however they like AND pack up with ease!
