Get ready to start your engines with our awesome recycled cardboard race cars craft! The only thing more fun than making these is seeing who will win the race. Ready, set…go!
What you will need:
Empty toilet paper roll
Step 1: Paint the toilet paper roll to create the body of your race car. Get creative! For younger kids, try outlining shapes in pencil for them to color in.
Step 2: Cut out and paint four cardboard circles, roughly 3″ in diameter, to make the wheels.
Step 3: Using a straight pin, puncture a hole in the center of each wheel and at each end of the toilet paper roll.
Step 4: Cut a straw in half. Using each half as an “axle,” insert through both the wheel and toilet paper roll.
Step 5: Now you’re ready to race!
