Outdoor Truck Track for Kids

My kids all love playing trucks. My two year old little boy loves his Tonka trucks and Caterpillar Trucks, he even got a brand new set for his birthday this winter. Now that the weather is improving and he can spend more time outside I wanted to create a fun outdoor area where he could drive his trucks, build, and move dirt all day long. He loves to move rocks, dirt, sticks, and everything else he can get his grimy little hands on while he plays. So we wanted to create something that was confined and allowed him to get things he could move safely and easily.

I came across this fun little area on Pinterest and knew right away I had to try to replicate it. We found some stones, some pavers, picked up some sand at the hardware store, found some pinecones, and some sticks and twigs for him to move and pickup and set to work creating a fun little zone just for him. It was simple, inexpensive and fast once we got started. Now he can play construction site all day long with his friends, siblings, or all by himself. Check out some of the ideas we used and feel free to create your own little construction zone! Thank you to Cute DIY Projects for some incredible ideas!
