This car is SO much fun!
It really makes my girls giggle because it seems like it has its own personality. We’ve had a great time tinkering with ramps, and there was also a failed zig-zag chute, but the girls also love attaching a string and chasing after each.
This project is pretty intuitive once you gather all the tools and materials together. A few pointers:
* Use large paperclips that have fewer kinks to straighten out.
* Try to cut your corks as evenly as possible.
* You can make the car without the hinge in the middle, but if you do make the hinge, be sure to leave a gap between the hinging parts.
I hope you try this one out, it truly is a toy for all ages!
