Liam could spend the entire day zooming around with his little cars, so the other day I whipped up this racetrack from a piece of cardboard I had saved for just such an occasion! I'm no great artist - that's for darn sure, but I do love making stuff for my boys out of random stuff that I've saved from the garbage. I've always got things like egg cartons, empty paper rolls, old magazines, shoe boxes etc... around for whenever inspiration strikes.
Once I made a guitar for Drew out of a couple Ritz cracker boxes and some rubber bands. It was pretty cool if I do say so myself. I wish I had a picture of it but alas, it got trashed before I got around to getting out the camera.
