The bloggers over at Playful Learning had the brilliant idea to reject the ugly car mat that is found in the toy store, and make an adorable, easy to store, fashionista version. And you can make one yourself because it’s easy as A, B, C! Attract your kids to this fun “city planning” and start with making roads from two pieces of tape about an inch apart. Leave open spaces around the board for buildings. Once you’re satisfied with the placement of the roads, draw a dashed line down the center of each road and add any other embellishments you’d like. To make the city building blocks you’ll need to paint two coats of acrylic paint on each block using a paintbrush and let it dry. And you’re ready for the exciting ride!
