DIY Outdoor Race Car TrackKeep your kids entertained for hours with this outdoor race car track! This DIY project is like a miniature version of a real race track. It has real plants, grass and roads made with cement mix.

You can make one in a size that’s big enough for your kids’ remote controlled cars. Add a small water feature and some hills to make the track more challenging. See how good your kids can drive here! Cars can tumble, fly and even go over the speed limit! :)
