We made a race car out of an empty toilet paper roll.  I used the end of the roll and marked out 4 wheels.  He painted his car red and his wheels black.  Then, I used paper brads and attached the wheels to the toilet roll using a hole punch.  He wanted his name and and the number 8 put on it.  What boy doesn't like race cars!  If you make the brads lose enough, the wheels will spin.




The last thing we did was some fun with ramps!  I had him get some of his Duplo blocks out and we built them at different heights and marked how far the car went with masking tape.  He had a blast!!



Blessings!!
