Toilet Paper Karts


This week we want to talk about vehicles. So we decided to build some cool karts and play with our little ones.
 
Race your kids with the karts that you design. Let them think about the fun stuff that they would like their vehicles to do. Get them to explain the features and use them in the race a la Mario Kart.
 
Whenever possible share with them a cool fact about vehicles, or explain them how parts of a vehicle actually work.
 
Enjoy the race and the fun chat. We think this relaxed environment is ideal to acquire interesting bits of information.
 
This activity involves cutting so parents might need to lend a hand there.
