Recycled Garage

I recently saw an idea to make a garage for matchbox cars out of cereal boxes and toilet paper tubes. (But I can't, for the life of me remember where online I saw it!) Here is our rendition. We used a cereal box for the top and for the ramp, toilet paper roll tubes to hold it up, and a piece of cardboard from some packaging for the bottom...and lots of tape! This toy has gotten a lot of use in the week or so since it's creation! It's down side is that it doesn't withstand encounters with the one year old very well. But on the up side, it just takes a little tape to repair it again!


  1. So fun - I've been meaning to do this... I think it was in Family Fun?

  2. Family Fun! My daughter 2.80 years old hehe would do great. My 17 month old--- eh not so much :/


Thanks for sharing your ideas! I love to hear and learn from others!
