##Heading: Materials Needed
For this project, you will need the following materials:
-A recycled cardboard box
-A recycled plastic bottle
-A rubber band
-Markers or paint (optional)

Materials needed

Wooden block
4 Wheels
3 washers
1 bolt
Paint the wooden block. Once dry, drill four holes in each side of the block, evenly spaced. Place the wheels on the axles and secure with washers and a bolt.

Step 1: Create the base

The base of your toy car will be one of the most important parts, as it will determine how well your car moves and how strong it is. You can use many different materials for the base, but we recommend using sturdy cardboard so that it is durable and won’t fall apart easily. Once you have your material, cut out a rectangle that is about 10 inches long and 6 inches wide. Then, use a pencil to mark four small dots on two opposite sides of the rectangle; these will be the axle holes for your wheels.

Step 2: Add the wheels

To add the wheels, first cut out four circles from cardboard. Make them about 2 inches in diameter. Then, use a hot glue gun to attach the wheels to the bottom of the car. Be sure to place them evenly so that the car will drive straight!

Step 3: Decorate the car

After you have made the basic structure of the car, it is time to decorate it! You can use paint, stickers, or any other materials you like to make your car uniquely yours. Get creative and have fun!

Step 4: Add the finishing touches

Once you have assembled the car body and wheels, it’s time to add the finishing touches. You can paint or decorate the car any way you like, using whatever materials you have on hand. Get creative and have fun!

Once you’re finished, your car is ready to race!


In conclusion, making a toy car is a fun and easy project that can be done in a few hours. With just a few simple supplies, you can make a toy car that will provide hours of enjoyment for your child.
