I love how creative children are. They see things in a completely different way to us.. I decided to encourage the creativity of my nephew’s love of cars this Christmas. Not only is it reusing resources and stopping them from being dumped in landfill.. it is loved by my nephew and pretty easy to create!
I purchased a wooden reel from a local scrap store. If you haven’t visited one then you really should they are amazing!!
I also purchased some black chalk paint from Amazon. I love this stuff… it can be used to paint most surfaces and drys as a chalkboard. I thought this was the perfect way to paint the reel, that way my nephew can draw and create whatever he wants on it using chalk!
Kindly enough I received some AstroTurf free from a local scrap store. I used this to decorate the top of the reel and added a few dinosaurs purchased from Amazon too! I created a city using some chalk pens from Amazon. These are great and easily wipe off tables and wooden surfaces, as well as this chalk board paint too.
The most open ended presents are the best right?!
I hope you had a great Christmas…
As always let me know your thoughts!
