DIY Racetrack Mat

We recently held a Megablok themed playdate at our house and my Handy Husband created this awesome Racetrack Mat for under $10 that can be used again and again. 

Supplies Needed:
Large White Paint Tarp ($7 at Home Depot)
Spray Paint (Black, Blue, Green, Brown)

 Draw your track using black spray paint.

Next:  Add a lake and some sand.

Fill in with green grass and add some trees.

The great thing about spray paint is it dries really quickly.  The tarp can be folded up easily and stored away out of site.

And special thanks to the Handy Husband who did this at 10pm the night before the playdate!  Such a good daddy!
