It was a lot of fun. The kids had a great time and their cars were really creative. This Converse shoe was my favorite.
It was very well-attended and all the kids were surprisingly well-behaved. Look how well they stay behind the ropes:
My dad was there, and he brought some of the cars that my brothers and I had made when we were in cub scouts. I'm proud to say that mine still held their own on the track. Dad's car still beat us every time though.
Have you ever made a car for a Pinewood Derby? Do you still have it? One year in college, my FHE group had a potato derby. Much like this one. Now that's fun.
