We brought in a large cardboard box today and invited the children to turn it into whatever they liked. They overwhelmingly voted to make it a race car. Using materials from the art center, they worked most of the morning to transform the box into the car, complete with a working sunroof, wheels, headlights, and interior parts like the pedals, transmission, and clutch! Thanks for your help Mr. Cipkar!
Once the car was finished the children pretended to race it, complete with safety racing goggles!
Someone directed the car using a traffic light to indicate when the car should start and stop racing.
When a lap was finished the car was gassed up and the wheels were changed.
