Fun little race car...we used it for the "R" unit, but would be fun for a transportation unit, too.
OK...this craft takes a ton of prep...you first have to paint the toilet paper roll. We painted them all blue. Red would be a fun race car, too...
After they are dry, cut a rectangle flap in each car. The easiest way for me to explain is going to be through pictures...so here they are:
After you have the flaps cut out, bend the flap in half and put a dollup of hot glue on one end and fold it in half. This is the windshield.
Next...cut out the circles. Black and white ones.
You'll need for each car:
4 large black wheels
4 medium white wheels
a black circle for the steering wheel
a large white circle with to put a number on
other decorations: stars and sequins
After they were done, the hardest part was getting the kids to stop playing with them long enough to let the glue dry!!
They were kind of time consuming, but the kids loved them!
