In preparation for our 2-3 week road trips this year I wanted to make several ‘new’ things for the kids to play with that were portable and wouldn’t make a mess in the car. When I saw The Nature of Grace’s Velcro story Block I knew I wanted to make something like it!

I started with a pizza box. We used papa johns because if you get their plain breadsticks (which we love!) they leave no grease/residue in the box.

Goofy helped me design his block town and we put sticky Velcro dots on the block to keep them steady in the car. Then we made a around the city & pond.

When Goofy is ready to move on to another activity he just pulls the block apart & pays them flat in the box & closes the lid with his blocks & cars right in there. Pretty nifty, huh?

Goofy LOVES our creation and is already testing it out before our trip!

  1. Buying a new car is ridiculous and you have gotten so much value out of this one Used Vans

  2. What a fun idea--I love how you used the velcro spots to hold the blocks on! I think I'm going to try a few versions of this for our roadtrip this fall!

  4. What an adorable idea. Our children would love it! I also love the preparation you are laying for travel. The ritual of this has always been very important for me, too. Enjoy and thank you for sharing.
