Race Track For Kids
We actually tried this gutter reuse out for ourselves. There is an elementary school across the road from us and they were looking for some gutters to use in their annual field day. So we donated some extra gutters to use in a game they had planned. We donated the gutters and they were used for duck races! The kids loved this game (and the squirt guns). You can find many different variations of this on pinterest to meet any age need. We’ve seen them used for cars, balls and more!
Wine Or Other Bottle Rack
