Fast & Furious™ + DIY

Fast & Furious™ has its first ever toy line!! I was really excited to hear about this line of toys because it is inspired by real characters and scenes from the movie. 

I went to the theaters to watch the first few Fast & Furious™ movies. Can you believe that there are eight films!? I can...the series is so beloved. Over the course of eight films that have successively stoked passion in an ever-expanding audience, Fast & Furious is a global box-office blockbuster that continues to entertain audiences of all ages.
 The newest chapter in this popular and enduring motion-picture serials of all time is The Fate of the Furious.

The latest Fast & Furious™ movie, F8 released on DVD July 11th.
I decided to make a DIY toy track for my kiddos to play on with their new Fast & Furious™ toy deluxe set, street scene set, and cars.
It's was such a hit!

You’ll need: 

Indoor outdoor carpet - any size. This can be a bit pricey so if you're looking for something more affordable green felt or fabric will do the trick. 

Black felt

White felt


This project was actually quite simple and I loved how it turned out with the indoor outdoor carpet. 

First I cut the black felt to look like roads. Straight roads, curved roads, roads with splits. The neat part about this is that the roads can be moved around and placed wherever the child wants, sort of like a train track. The felt stuck so nicely to the carpet there was no need to glue the road down. 

Once road is placed down, use the white felt to cut tiny strips to make the stripes on the road. These can also be taken off which is what my youngest daughter did with them. 

I have four children and all of them really enjoyed playing with these Fast & Furious™ play sets. My youngest two daughters couldn’t get enough to the cars slinging through the backdrops. The backdrops added the perfect touch to this toy! It made these sets seem so realistic.
