Custom Roadway

I originally posted this in the summer, my son still plays with it daily, it is still in great condition and I have since made a second one, with a Home Depot and a Church ( my son’s favorite destinations). A friend did a cool version of it with sharpies as a outline and her son colored it in, very cute! I wonder what activity will be number 4?


  1. Gather your materials . You will need a brown paper grocery bag, black, green and any other color you choose construction paper, double sided tape , glue, scissors, colored pencils and contact paper.
  2. Cut your bag open so it’s wide , trim the bottom piece off and save for later.
  3. Using black paper and yellow colored pencil design your roadway.
  4. Once you have decided on the design , cut it out . Cover your bag with green construction paper, glue it down, then tape your roadway down I say tape because you may want to move it , tape is easier to move.
  5. Start adding scenery like a pond.
  6. You can use the extra grocery bag paper to make a house or other buildings too.
  7. Tape your scenery down.
  8. Add a contact paper cover to make it sturdy and keep everything in place.
  9. Add some Hotwheels and have hours of fun!

    I’m excited to find your site. I am a former early childhood teacher and am now a stay at home mom-I’m always looking for great activities to do with my boys.
