NCGW Things to do

Snail Racetrack

Here’s what you’ll need!

A variety of chalks in different colours

A racetrack (a path, ideally out of the way)

Decorations: Lego works great for this, but any branches could be imagined as seating for spectators, milk tops, sand, toy figures


  1. Start with the outline, taking into consideration what type of track you want to make, is it a drag race or a circuit?
  2. A dashed white line helps your child imagine this is a road
  3. Runoff areas around the corners, with stands for spectators and crash barriers
  4. Why not try writing some bug advertising such as RedSnail or Caterpirelli!
  5. Let their imaginations roam free, if they’re not interested in bugs, toy cars work fine!
