Disney/Pixar has created an awesome activity pack for kids to go along with the soon to be released Cars 2 movie. They have a bunch of great crafts that you can make, including Mazes, Soap Box Dragster Activities, T-shirt Designs, a Radiator Springs Play Set. Sometimes the crafts we do are too “girly” for my son, but these crafts are perfect for both boys and girls. My son and I tried making the Tube Racers out of toilet paper tubes, and they came out pretty cute.
We painted the toilet paper tubes and decorated them. Then we cut wheels out of a foam sheet and hubcaps out of aluminum foil and attached them to the cars with paper fasteners. The directions were clear, and easy to follow, although we did find out that cutting aluminum foil was more difficult than we expected, since it kept ripping.
Here are some of the other activities included in the set, try some out if you are looking for fun crafts. Also don’t forget you can enter to win a Cars 2 Prize pack.
