New racetrack for grandkids

We decided to turn half my green house into a play area for the grandkids.  So, we created a cement racetrack in part of it.  Almost finished with it, just a small section left to add cement to.  Originally, we were going to have it colored black like a road but the coloring you add to cement didn't do anything.  We added a whole bottle to 2 bags of cement and it looked the same as without it.  So I will paint or stain it black later since we were trying to get the track done for Easter so the kids would have a new thing to play with.  I still have to dig the sand out of the middle of the race track and add play sand there.  Already bought some medium and small dump trucks for the track/sand and a sand castle building set with the molds.  Will set hot wheels out too since I have a bucket full.  Putting up the metal oil pan for magnetic letters today.  Will be adding a 4x8 chalk board later and some other things as we get them done.
Liking how it turned out.  Will add chalk lines for now.
And I also finished the other half of the greenhouse where my veggie boxes will be sitting now.
We just combined 2 of my 6' boxes and 2 of my 4' boxes together to make them wider for planting.  Will be putting my tomato plants in grow bags so the roots can breath and the soil doesn't stay soaked.  Also have some grow boxes that I purchased 5 years ago, rectangle shaped.  Those and the tomato plants will sit on the dirt ledge that is to the right of the photo that you can't see.  I will start planting my seeds tonight.
