Kids Tape Race Track

It's summer time and I'm loving it.
But there are times we need some quiet play in the house, so I can get things done.
(My kids aren't old enough to play unsupervised outside...yet.)

And since cars are a big favorite at our house, I tried changing it up.
Instead of using our old car mats and tracks...we made our own with tape.
We made them on the carpet, the tile, in the bedrooms, etc.

After a little trial and error I decided:
Masking tape for the tile, because the blue painter's tape peels of too easily...even from the tires of the cars.
And blue painter's tape is best for doesn't stick as well, so it doesn't leave any residue on carpets of pull up the fibers.
But this was a huge hit and it was cheap and quick with materials we keep around the house.

The only draw kids don't want them removed, so we'd keep ours for a few days and we got several confused looks and questions from visitors.
