For a more permanent option, may I direct your attention to this lovely room by Dobson and Vivian (via ohdeedoh).

These last three activities are my favorites because they show that making the tracks can be just as fun as driving on them. I love how Tokketok used craft paper to create a playground for trains, cars, and boats all in one place. (Of course my version won’t look nearly as pretty as this but I don’t think my 2 year old will mind much.)
This table top recycling center at No Time for Flashcards is great for practicing sorting and teaching your kiddos about going green. All you need is a road and a few labeled color stations and you’re open for business.

Last is the homemade version of the road tape we started with. I like The Mother Huddle’s version even better than the commercial product because it’s a completely open-ended activity. Case in point, this one has a mini marina and an airport. Head over to see all the clever details.
Got a creative track idea I missed? Let me hear all about it in the comments below!
