Paper Tape Roads

Paper Tape Roads

 

So we are all stuck at home. What can we do to help entertain our little one? When my son was 4, I used paper tape to create a neighborhood in our living room. I made roads and parking lots. I even made some of the roads go up and down my sofa. My son used his matchbox cars, Lego blocks, and pieces of other play sets to create his own little city. He played for hours. He drove his cars to the grocery store, he set up a farm, and he even built his dad’s office so his cars could visit. 

If you do not have Lego blocks or farm play sets that’s ok. You can pull out the construction paper, glue, stuff from your recycling like toilet paper rolls and cereal boxes, sticks, and just about anything really. Let your kids create trees out of cereal boxes. Maybe they could build a barn using an old shoe box. If they don’t have small cars, make some using clothespins. Kids need creative play and they need time with you so help them build the neighborhood they live in. 😊

As a side note, the tape did make my carpet a little fuzzy in places when I took it up. It wasn’t bad but if you are worried about that, make a place in your kitchen or somewhere with linoleum or hardwood floors (not sure how the tape comes off hardwoods).
