Toilet Paper Roll Race Cars for Kids
Use empty toilet paper rolls to make cute cars that really roll!
This race car craft is perfect for any child because there is more than one way to make it. If you have the right supplies you can create cars that look exactly like mini race cars and really roll. If you can't get all the proper supplies you can still make shelf cars. They might not roll but they look great on display. Whichever car you're going to make start by painting the toilet paper roll with acrylic paints.
There are many different designs you can create with the paints. Make long stripes, all the way around the roll, using two or more different colors. Or, paint the entire roll one color then add racing stripes. Create a more unique look by painting on triangles. Paint one long triangle, from one end to the other, then paint a different colored triangle that faces the other way. So, the bottom of one triangle will lie next to the point of the next one, and so on.
After the paint has dried you can further decorate the race car. Use colored tape to make racing stripes or stickers to give each car a number. Stickers can be used to create themes for the cars, too. Things you have around the house that can be used to decorate the car include comic strips instead of paint, scrapbook paper, colored tape, paper cutouts, images or words from product boxes (peel away excess cardboard from back), paper labels and even glitter glue.
Make a rectangular shape on the top of the toilet paper roll. To do so, cut a vertical shape directly in the center of the lengthwise roll. From this slit cut one more on each side, at the top, and one more slit on each side, at the bottom. The final cut design should resemble an "I" with the top and bottom of the "I" being extra long. The "I" shape allows you to create two flaps that can be folded into the opening. Fold the two flaps downward, into the new cockpit. One flap will form the back of the backseat. The other flap will create a dashboard where you can attach the steering wheel.
Use a sharp pencil lead, an ice pick, or something similar to make holes for the wheel axles. The holes should be exactly even on each side and should be placed near the two open ends of the tube. Slide a toothpick or piece of a wooden skewer into each hole. Glue a bead onto each end of the stick to create the wheels. The hole of the bead should be small enough so that the stick fits well. The bead should be smooth and not faceted.
Another way to create the wheels is to use flat buttons. Glue a tiny pony bead to the backside of the button then glue the toothpick inside the pony bead. To hide the button on the outside cut pieces of foil to use as hubcaps. Give them a slightly rounded shape by laying them over a small, rounded object, like a mascara or even a knuckle. Glue them over the button to hide its holes.
If you don't have wood pieces or beads, so you're unable to make axles, you can create cars that don't actually roll but look great on a shelf. Cut wheels from black foam, cardboard, or pieces of plastic. If you want, cut out pictures of car tires and glue them to cardboard. Attach the wheels to the sides of the car using hot glue or other adhesives.
Make a steering wheel from a button, a piece of black craft foam or even a a piece of cardboard. Use a picture of a steering wheel to cover the cardboard or otherwise decorate it. Use a small rubber ring, meant for use as a seal, to create a more realistic-looking steering wheel. Wrap tiny strips of foil around it to create a glitzy look for the wheel. Make black and silver stripes this way or create a different design with the foil.
Glue the wheel in place and the car is ready to roll or be displayed. Kids will have lots of fun racing each other with the cars or creating a huge collection of different shelf cars. It's an inexpensive way to create your own fun on an otherwise boring day. Get your supplies together and join in on the craft with your kids. You know your car will beat those kids' cars any time!
