The Best Activities and Gifts for Boys that Love to Play with Cars

Sharing is caring!

I still remember when my first son became excited about playing cars. He was only 18 months and he would play with them  for hours upon hours every day. I still remember his favorite car. It was an ice cream truck and he would carry it around everywhere he went!

Now he’s 7, and he still loves to get cars as gifts. He has a younger brother now who is 18 months and it’s fun to watch them play together. So, for those of you with boys who are car fans, I’ve compiled an abundance of the best activities, games, and gifts. Hopefully you don’t get too overwhelmed. Follow the links to get all of the instructions for each activity/game. Enjoy!
