This project’s goal: do it as cheap and quickly as possible! So pardon it for not being too pretty! I wanted to make a ramp of different textures like the one at our local science center. I thought about it off and on, never really finding a good solution. The most important thing (after price and ease) was that it not take up much room. Everything I had already around the house except the microfiber mitt. So in a way, this project was just a $1, but not really. I will refer to it as a “Dollar Store Textures Ramp” because you could easily get any extra materials you need there!

So, here is what I did for a quick textures ramp.

Quick DIY textures ramp!

Supplies used:
Baking sheet
Microfiber mitt (from the dollar store)
Rough sandpaper
Bubble wrap
Brown cardstock
Mini popsicle sticks
Pipe insulation
Glue Dots

Directions:

  1. Started with a cookie sheet for convenience
  2. Trimmed four different textures to size. The only thing I bought was a microfiber mitt; one side is the one on the left with all the scrubby parts; another is the middle
  3. The 2nd and 4th sections are rough sandpaper and bubble wrap (that I already had)
  4. The final section is simple brown cardstock with some mini popsicle sticks glued on top
  5. Finally, I used some pipe insulation, cut it in quarters and glued each piece down between the “lanes” of textures
  6. Gave him a few cars to test and race!

This was used with our 13 Car Tot Trays & Activities.
