Design Your Own Race Car

Design Your Own Race Car craft

With Crayola Model Magic®, you can customize your own sets of wheels! Whether you make an imaginary or real race car, this project will get your creativity revving.

  • 1.

    Begin your car by covering a small box with slabs of Crayola Model Magic® compound. You can make your car realistic or even exaggerated by bending the compound or making some parts really large compared to others.

  • 2.

    Now to equip your vehicle. Shape the doors, roof, hood, trunk, and sides with bits of compound or modeling tools. Cut pieces with Crayola Scissors for nice clean lines. Smooth out the seams with your fingers. Remember to add details such as a gas cap, door handles, and windshield wipers. Overlap pieces as needed.

  • 3.

    To make the axles, use drinking straws. Measure and cut two axles so they are slightly longer than the width of your vehicle. Roll equal-sized balls for the tires and flatten. Attach tires to the axles. Turn the car over and attach the axles to the undercarriage with strips of Model Magic compound.

  • 4.

    When your car has all the parts you want, you’re ready to add details. Use Crayola Glitter Glue to make trim, dots, wheel covers, and even little reflection lines on the "glass" parts.

  • 5.

    Model Magic® dries to the touch overnight and dries completely in 2 to 3 days. You could make drawings of your vehicle and animate it! Or make a road or racetrack on which to display it. Have your friends make this project with you and invent your own racing team names!
