Craft Time – Cardboard Road

Do you remember this post about energy food?  Well, I didn’t want to get rid of the box and my son was getting bored that day. He loves to play with different kinds of toy vehicles and I thought giving him a “road” to play on would be great.


I started with this box. I cut both the top sides (left and right) open then I spread it out to get the longest length.


Then I trimmed the excess to make one long rectangular piece. I then got some black art paper and wrapped the two ends. In the middle, I got some black poster paper because I ran out of art paper and I also wanted the different texture.


I then cut some rectangles from a bond paper and glued them to make the lines on the road.


My son couldn’t wait to try it out. Good thing the glue held. I just used regular school glue. It was Bic, I think.  He uses it to make his cars line up, as a road and as a plane runway.


Until now he still uses this cheap toy that I made. This is already several months old. The great thing about this is that it’s foldable because of the natural flaps of the box. It’s easy to store.
