A DIY racetrack!

Bricks, stones, a few pine cones, and anything else you can find lying around the yard are all you need to turn a patch of lawn into a racetrack that is sure to keep kids entertained for hours.

The racetrack doesn’t have to be big – although it certainly can be.

There are no limits, other than your imagination! The dad above used a shovel to dig out the shape of a racetrack, then filled it with cement. If you don’t want something so permanent, however, the track could be made of bricks, stones, or simply dirt.

Cool accessories for the tracks, like cars and even dinosaurs, can be purchased cheaply at a thrift shop or dollar store.

Even though it’s technically for the kids, parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, and older siblings will all get a kick out of relaxing in the sun and watching them play.

Some people have pointed out that the yard surrounding the tracks will receive a lot of damage.

The family above avoided damage to grass by building their racetrack, complete with sandbox, in a mulched area. The plants they chose look hearty enough to withstand a stomp or two, but it’s also a good opportunity to teach kids to respect plant life.

But why stop with just a racetrack?

A pool noodle carefully cut down the middle makes the perfect track for a downhill race. Good luck getting the kids to come inside!
