DIY Crafts meets toys meets awesome
One of my son's favorite activities is creating DIY roads and parking garages for his collection of Matchbox cars. So when I saw this super easy tutorial, I thought it would be a cool way to take his imaginative play to the next level.
These DIY chalkboard city blocks
from hellobee are brilliant, imaginative fun. Requiring only a few supplies (and crafty genes are NOT on the list of must-haves), you and your favorite car-lover can whip up an entire neighborhood in a couple of minutes. Vroom-vroom!
All you'll need is chalkboard paint, sandpaper, and a bunch of old blocks (or even the piles of wood pieces you've got lying around your garage--wait, is that only me?). Once you've painted the blocks and let them dry overnight, just hand your little ones a few pieces of chalk. They can take it from there, designing their own buildings and houses for hours of play. Awesome. -Kristen
