Make a car

Activity lasts: 10 minutes (or longer)

What you need:

Toilet roll tube | Paint | Paint brush | Black card | Scissors | Glue


Use your favourite colour to paint the toilet roll tube. While the tube is drying, cut four circles out of the black card. Use white paint or a pencil to draw a white circle in the centre of each black circle - these will become the wheels. Once the paint is dry, use a pencil to pierce a hole in the toilet roll tube and then cut out a square and two extra slits either side and fold the card backwards. Now you can decorate your car using a different colour paint. Once the paint is dry you can use glue or tape to assemble the car. Make more than one to have a race, who's car will be the fastest?
