Pinewood Derby Car - Creeper

Here is another recent project. Another son had a pinewood derby race for cub scouts and he wanted to make a creeper car. He picked the car design from a bunch his den leader had.

Since my son is only six with a limited attention span I had to give him jobs that would keep him interested. He helped a little with the cutting. He did a little more of the sanding but he primarily did the paint job. He also helped me buff the axles but he got very bored with that.

Overall I think it turned out pretty nice. He really liked it and had a lot of fun at his race. He ended up getting third in his den. In a few weeks I will be doing this again for my daughter in girl scouts.
