DIY Car Shoots for Children




I've recently been looking at car shoots for Lily. As a lover of cars, Lily has an entire box full of toy ones and she loves pretending to race them around the room. I recently went to the Argos website on the hunt for something like this, what is essentially a slide for Lily to put her cars down. However I have to admit seeing the price really put me off!

After talking to my mum she had the genius idea of making a DIY car shoot for Lily and for the children she childminds. Having recently had her drains done she had two long drainpipes lying around in the garden which she'd been intending to take to the skip. As fate had it..these actually make perfect car shoots!



As you can see from these pictures the way we set it up is pretty simple. We start the drainpipe at the garden table, which happens to the be the perfect height for the kids, and balance it on a cheap Ikea stool. Queue a happy Lily who now spends hours racing the cars down the shoot! And a happy me because I get to sit back with a coffee and watch ;)


There's plenty of other ways to make DIY slides for toy cars too. If its an indoor one your wanting why not selotape some toilet rolls together? Think of all the pennies you'll save!
