So the best part about this DIY racetrack…

Not that it entertained my son for days, but that before we could tape it out, he had to clean-up the basement. Our basement was redone cheaply as a space for our children, but it is one of the spaces that you just have to get organized all the time!

Supplies Needed:

-A flat space

-Painter’s Tape

-Toy cars (My son recently is into all the car movies and his imagination was soaring using the characters from the movies)

**A note about painter’s tape**

Normally I always recommend using this brand for all of your DIY paint projects, however, this simple blue or cheaper tape will work. Using painter’s tape will hopefully not leave a residue on our basement carpet.

I would not leave this track too long on the surface. Well, painter’s tape should be safe, you always want to check your area. Factors such as the amount of sun that may factor on the surface may leave a residue over time. However, I think our track will be good to leave for around a month.

The great thing about this DIY racetrack is that I can always pull it up and redo it. We may even add to this original racetrack and have one that covers more space in our basement.

How to Tape Out Racetrack

1. Start to create the outer edge of your racetrack. You can slightly bend the tape to make rounder edges. Rip the tape to make sharper turns because you will want the tape as flat as possible on the floor.

2. Continue taping your racetrack with the inside loop.

3. Add a starting line, crew pit and stands. Ask your little one what else they might want!
