DIY Outdoor Car Track

School started this week after about 8 weeks of Summer holidays. Our playground was a big mess because we have had builders driving through the yard with work trucks all holidays. It took us a while to rake and clean the yard but then we managed to create some lovely new little play spaces.

I saw a similar idea once and thought it would be perfect for a little nook in our outdoor area. This little car track is perfect for your garden or playground, it is inexpensive to make and fun for all to play with.

Choose the bricks you want to use. I chose grey to resemble real roads.


Measure the middle of the bricks and mark the centre lines with a pencil.

Paint the lines on the bricks with white outdoor paint to resemble the white lines on the road.
( It would be a good idea to plan your road map before painting. I didn't do this and the lines don't flow as well as they could!!)


Sink the bricks into the sand and add pebbles, plants, cars, people, wooden blocks.....anything you can think of.





Let me know what you think.
