I always want my kids to pretend play — to imagine, to create, and to just be unplugged. As they get older, it’s been harder and harder to find something that will engage both kids in pretend play with something they will play together. (They’re 14 and 11.) But PlayTape pretend road tape reinvigorated my kids’ imaginative car play. Which is why I’m telling you about it — because, hooray for play!
And frankly, this kind of car pretend play is great for all ages from little to big!
They used to do this with Duct Tape until 1) my husband complained about us ruining the carpet and 2) okay, that’s pretty much it. Just the one. Carpet ruining wasn’t good. And painters tape wasn’t as fun.
Cool PlayTape Reinvigorates Our Pretend Play
Hooray! This play is SO good for them socially, emotionally, and cognitively.
PlayTape sticks to any flat surface — we used our hardwoods. It tears easily to any length although my kids used scissors to cut it. Not only that, it’s repositionable.
Just making roads helped my kids think of new stories and ideas for their cars.
For example, JJ, the resident crafter, made a FRO-O stand (frozen oil). So fun, right?!
They created a town, a race track, and a large parking lot.
I think it’s a bargain to get kids into pretend playing with cars! What do you think?
I received two complimentary rolls of PlayTape and corners and curve stickers.
