Saturday Snapshot- Pinewood Derby

This month was my first graders first Pine Wood Derby for Cub Scouts.  He wanted to make a shark car.  He built this one with his dad and loved it, but at check-in the night before we found out that having it undercut at the front is against the rules.
So they came home and built another one.  My husband gets credit for helping build two cars, one the night before,  and for staying up late to make sure everything was glued on and ready for the morning race.  My son still likes the first car the best.

  2. I can envision father and son designing the cars, shaping them, and then doing the final detailing. What a great activity for them both! Extra points to dad for the last-minute work.

  3. How fun. Yes, that first car looks real cool. I'm sure father/son had a huge bonding time. ;)
