Quick Tip: Roads on a Tablecloth


We love to use masking tape to make roads for our cars. We use tape all over our floors, and then we pull up the tape at the end of the day.

As an option, you can use a vinyl tablecloth (or the back of the Giant Game Floor Mat) as a base for roads. Kids can tape on the tablecloth just like on the floor. But you don't need to worry about removing the tape quickly as you do on a carpeted floor. You can also fold up the tablecloth and save the roads to use again on another day.

This option can make the tape roads reusable and more permanent.

    BTW - Great advise about removing the tape straight away. I wish I'd known about that the time I left a giant masking tape square on our carpet for a whole term ... whoopsie!
