What little boy doesn’t love race cars?
Here is an upcycled version of a roadster that your child will love to help create so he can start his own Indy 500.
Racer’s start your engines…
Toilet paper or paper towel rolls
Paint (I used acrylic)
Circular Punch (Not pictured)
Cardboard (think cereal boxes or a 6-pack holder)
If you are using paper towel rolls, cut the paper towel rolls to the size of a toilet paper roll. Paint the inside of the rolls white and the outside a solid color.
Punch out circles on the cardboard. These will be the tires.
Paint the tires black. I used a wine cork and dipped it in paint for the center of the tire.
After everything is dry, cut a U-shaped cut on top of the cylinder and fold the cardboard back and glue together to make the back of the seat.
Attach the tires to the roll with a brad.
Decorate the roadster with designs made out of construction paper and glue in place.
Drop the green flag to start the race!
