Build Your Own Unique Wooden Car

Ever since my eldest son was young, he LOVED cars.  Is your child that way too?  Then you'll understand why we've done a ton of car crafts over here on the blog.  And boy are you in for a treat with today'd post.  Tada!  My husband and son designed and built their very own wooden car... for free!

If you want to build a car with your child, you could always get one of those nifty build your own wooden race car kits at the store.  I have nothing against those kits (in fact, we've purchased a couple for our eldest).

Our car is not quite as sleek and nifty-looking as the cars you'll get in a kit.  But it's unique and completely designed and created by my son and husband.

Oh.  And it's free to build.

What?  Well, while cleaning out our tool chest and garage, my husband found all these bits and bobs lying around from old wood projects.   Then, he and my son worked together one afternoon and used up all the extra pieces to create their very own race car.

They used materials that we already owned, like...

I loved the caster wheels.  They move in all directions.  Plus, the car can still drive even if it falls on its side while racing.  Shnazzy.
