What you'll need:
household items that can be used for the body of a car, wheels, and axles
Gather some materials from around your house! You’ll need something for the body of your car, the axles (something like a toothpicks or straws), and wheels!
Make sure everything you’re going to use is clean and that you have permission to use it.
Determine where you want the wheels and axles to be on your racer, and carefully poke holes in the body of your car. You need one set of holes for the front wheels and another set of holes for the back wheels. You can do this with a pen or a toothpick, or even a screwdriver or scissors (but ONLY if an adult is helping you).
Place your axles through the holes you made.
Attach your wheels to your axles. You may need to use glue or tape, or anything else you can think of.
Test your car! Does it move? If not, what can you go back and redesign?
Decorate your car and show us what you did!
