5 Minute Prep: Car Racers

5 Minute Prep: Car Racers

My two little ones are both home with me every afternoon. If I don’t entertain them, my day is much worse. I would rather happy kids then me playing referee while they fight over a toy. I was staring at a bunch of my left over paper towel rolls from my craft projects, and thought why not make car racers. It literally took me 5 minutes to create them and the kids had fun playing with this new creation. If you are making these with small children, make sure┬áto put them away after usage because they may pick them up like swords and fight ­čÖé

What You Will Need
* 4 Whole Paper Towel Rolls
* Roll of masking tape
* Scissors
* Two mini toy cars in your home (you can also use marbles)

Directions
* Cut all for paper towel rolls length wise in half. Fold the sides so it looks like a gutter.
* Make two long tracks by taping 4 pieces of paper towel length wise together. Make sure you tape both sides of the paper towels. You may have to re-fold the sides again.
* You can put tape behind the tops of the tracks and lean them up against a chair, counter, wall, or couch.
* Let your children have fun racing.
