Christmas wrapping made fun for kids


Don't mind the terrible pictures.  Yeah, trying to get pretty pictures of two littles and a daddy that just got off work isn't the easiest thing at 7 pm!  But I have to share my seemingly lame but amazing entertaining race track!

Seriously, who doesn't have like 50 million rolls of wrapping paper cardboard left over after wrapping presents?  Well, I had 4 so I simply cut each along the long side and folded the other side to create a "flat" track.  Then I taped the tubes together with some handy dandy duck tape.  Of course we had to end with a sweet ramp to help the cars "fly" so we rigged up a piece of wood on a stool.  Now, in order to get the cars rolling you need to start the first tube fairly hight up.  So I attached mine to the landing on our staircase with a paper clip and twisty tie.  Oh yes, very fancy, I know!

This has been up for 3 days and my 4 year old is still lining up cars to race!
