Felt Road patrol kit

My nephew Kyle just turned 2.  After making homemade gifts for his brothers and sisters I, of course had to make something fun and creative for him as well!

Some of my other gifts I have made some of the other children in Kyle’s family include:

Adam’s homemade detective kit
Audrey’s Play Pizzeria
Audrey’s Madeline Costume
Adam’s Red box gift set

I made Kyle ” Officer Kyle’s patrol kit”

Although this gift is a little advanced for a 2 year old, I know Kyle will get help on how to use it from his three older brothers and older sister. 

I purchased 1 yard of felt and cut them into pieces of road. I made them all the same size by using my first cut piece of road as a guide for all my other pieces.

I made the road lines with yellow 3d Puff paint.

I wanted this gift to be interactive.  I found images of road signs online. Printed them out and glued them on the back of craft foam to make them sturdy.

I packed them all in a box and also included a Hot Wheels police car.

Included instructions.

I packed them all up in a plastic container.

  13. Hi there 🙂
    I have made 'roads' to my boys after I found your blog on Totally Tutorials. Thanks a lot for shearing your ideas 🙂
    I made my road of syntethic leather. To fix the roads to the floor, I used glue-spray under them. It works very fine.
