It's Pinewood Derby Time again!
I started looking on Pinterest for ideas our boy's cars this year. Which led me to their cars from last year, which were the best so far, and I thought I had to share them!
Seth had a Hershey’s Cookies & Creme car and it won Best of Show. It also placed 2nd for speed. Wyatt had a School Bus and it won in speed for the sibling division. It was also a top contender for Best of Show, but they only allowed the actual Cub Scouts to enter for Best of Show, so we had to have everyone re-vote.
Seth’s car was just cut really thin and we used weights that looked like the bars of a Hershey bar, painted it white, then put black sharpie on top to look like the cookies, and painted white again. Then we wrapped an actual wrapper around it and called it a done deal.
Wyatt’s bus, I cut decals out with my cricut from vinyl and just stuck it to the sides. What’s funny, is that we seriously on sanded the bus, didn’t cut the block at all from the kit. While he couldn’t compete against the scouts for an actual place, we did race it against the scout’s cars for fun, and he beat out a lot of them.
Good luck with your pinewood derby car, and hope that this provide you with some more ideas!
