Match Car Board for Twins..........


When my boys were little I made a board for them to run their "Match Box Cars" on and thought I would do the same for the twins. I buy bags of cars at the thrift stores and have quite a few! The boys love playing with them, but until now just played with them on the table top! I worked on this board many weeks ago, but never completed it. When the twins were here Sunday, they pulled it out and wanted the cars. I decided that before them are over again (Sunday for Super Bowl Party) I would have it finished for them. It was hard getting a pic due to the glare on the slick finish (Modge Podge). I made it fold up for easy storage and Rog is going to drill holes at each side for a rope handle. Easy to carry and store:)
There is one thing that these cold and snowy days are good for.....getting projects finished:)

Linda this is so cute!

We've been at the lake most of January, working on the condo. Came home for drs appointments etc this week. I've spent today trying to catch up. Enjoyed all your posts as always.

Hope the ice missed you! We have snow, with just a little sleet yesterday. Still snowing. Doesn't look like much accumulation though.

Whenmy boys were small I made them a felt town and roadway for their cars. They used it so much it eventually fell apart.
I am sure that your little grandsons will have the same amount of fun with theirs!!
