Tracks: not for the neat freaks.

Tracks is what I call an activity we like to do on a once-in-awhile basis. Why? Because flour is messy. It’s almost glitter messy. However, I’ve found that with the help of a vacuum, this activity is totally worthwhile.

All you need is a cookie sheet or cake pan (or any other receptacle), about 1/2 cup flour, and a couple cars.

That’s it.

Familiar with this activity (though it's been awhile), Elliot dove right in.

Mary had her own way of playing, SO much neater than her brother, which isn't typical for her.

Edison dove right in, as if he's done this this activity a million times before (it was his first)!

All three kids played their own way, it was so neat to see how each one took to this activity.

When I got out the vacuum, Elliot and Mary actually wanted to help me clean up! Woot! I’ll jump at that offer!

When he finished with his cars, he vacuumed the table AND the floor for me! Woo-hoo!
