Race cars – Down hill racing cars made from wood and painted by individual family members then raced down a smooth track are great ways to have fun. The individual cars can be all the same, a simple block of wood propped up by four, free spinning wheels. Each individual family member can then paint their vehicle in the manner that best suits that individual. The track can easily be completed by taking one wide wooden board and attaching small sides to the board so the vehicles do not fall off. The vehicles can be raced over and over again, with a little trophy going to the winner of each race.
