{DIY} Chalkboard City For Hot Wheels
So do we have any other hot wheel lovers out here?  Well my kids love them.  And I find myself loving them too.  Mostly loving to find new ways for the kids to play with them.  Our hot wheels get played with everyday!  Most days its just them and the cars but many times I QUICKLY throw something together for them to add a little extra excitement to their play.  And maybe if I am lucky they will play a few extra minutes so I can take care of baby brother.  Another love of mine is CHALK PAINT.  I found this stuff last year and have been hooked since.  When I first got it I could not stop looking for things to paint,haha.  Now I just wait for that moment to come when I know this must have chalk paint.  This moment came when I was spray painting another project in this box.  Since the bottom of the box was almost covered in chalk paint anyways I quickly thought let me not waste this opportunity to use the box as well.  My son already loves playing with his cars in these boxes so what better than to make him a CHALKBOARD CITY for his hot wheels.

My son couldn’t wait to get in the box to play.  He saw me with the box before I could get the chalk city drawn and he kept asking and standing under me with excitement   What are you making mommy, is it for me mommy,  I can put my cars in there mommy… I was excited because he was excited.  In less than 5 minutes I handed him the box and he quickly filled it with cars.  Off to playing he went.

He went from playing at the table to playing on his Tonka Rug.  A go to spot for hot wheel playing.  This is a great busy box activity for the kids.  While 2 kids napped he played long enough for me to get a few things done around the house.  Now we just store his box for when he wants to play again.

What I did

I was working on spray painting another project and was using the box to contain the mess.  Once I was through, I spray painted the bare spot in the box and gave it a second coat a few minutes later.  I left it to dry overnight.  The next day I took a piece of white chalk and quickly drew a city in the chalkboard box.  Last, I had big brother pick out a few hot wheels and let him play.  I have a feeling we could use this chalkboard for more play ideas.  What would you do with it?
