Potatoe Potato - It's Race Time

Potato Car Races

on your marks... get set... go.....

Here is a fun and entertaining craft for a big group of kids. Create your own Potato Car and have a Race off.   I was asked to lead the "craft time" for a friend's child's birthday party... and this is what I came up with. Create your own Potato Cars and have a race off.  The kids had a BLAST making and races their cars.  And total cost... about 1$ - 2$ per car. 
Here is what you need for your Car:
  • A large potato - 1 per car
  • Wooden wheels (found at Michaels craft store) - 4 for each car 
  • Dry wall Nails - 4 for each car
  • Small craft beads - the wheels will not spin without it. - 4 for each car
  • Popsicle sticks = 1 for each car
  • Paint and paint brushes
  • Paper plates 
What you need for the Race Track
  • Large piece of flexible white wood paneling
  • Black and White Paint
