Artful Cars

Author:  GSLC

Have a car show and race. Have each boy decorate a toy car (Hot Wheel/Matchbox size). You
can supply one, or he can use his own. These can be decorated at the activity or prior to it. You
may also want them to make a way of displaying it, such as a cardboard platform and backdrop.
Let everyone “tour” the show with 3 or 5 anonymous judges choosing cars for different categories.
If desired, you can let the boys know there will be judging and what the categories are when
you announce the activity. The boys should try to be creative using tacky or hot glue to attach
small objects such as beads, feathers, googly eyes, pipe cleaners, sand, sequins and buttons.
Remember to keep the wheels movable if racing. There are no limits on size or weight, except
original size of car. Be sure to let the glue dry completely before showing, or racing the automobiles.
After the show the cars can be raced down a simple incline. The winner is the car that goes
the farthest.
