Traffic in the city

We saw a carton box lying idle at the corner of the room and wondered if we can do anything with it..

So we cut them open

Lay them flat and taped them together

Next we spread glue all over the box

And covered the box with brown paper

I helped Ethan cut some black foams and he pasted them as roads

Ethan painting a toilet paper roll blue. It is later used as a tunnel.

Cut doors out of tissue boxes and wrapped it with coloured construction paper.

Tah-dah! A mini town! But it looks bare and boring.. So we added some features.

It has a car wash

And petrol station too :D

It also has a tunnel

And a ramp for cars to fly! :D

Bumper-to-bumper jam heading to the Volkswagen. Das auto. Show 2011 @ Stadium Bukit Jalil Open Air Car Park :P

He loves it so much he brings it with him to the Studio and everywhere!

Ethan told me this at the end of the day, “It feels like so hard to make this, so much work to do but I like it!”

That’s all I needed to hear from him. I told my boss it would be so much easier to just buy him a track but looking at him happily playing with this and requesting us to join him is worth all the effort! :D
