- toilet paper rolls
- cardboard (not to thin, not to thick - just make sure it can be cut easily)
- drinking straws
- glue, scissors
- 1 hole paper punch
Have the kids color the toilet paper.
Cut drinking straws. When you thread them through the holes there should be about an inch (2 cm-ish) of them sticking out on each side.
Before applying the glue bend the cut straw stripes. Apply glue and cover with another cardboard circle. You have your first wheel! Rinse and repeat until all wheels are done.
We made the car seats when all our racers were assembled but thinking back it would be a lot easier if this was done before wheels were added. Live and learn.
Bling up! Add car spoilers, color the wheels, add stripes, stars...
