The Reese's cup is carved out of the wood from our block. We used the dremel on the sides to make it look like a wrapper. I used a computer program to trace the Reese's logo and I cut the image with my scrapbook Cricut cutter. Hope you like it!
UPDATE WITH RACE RESULTS:
37 racers, a 42 ft. wood track, and guess who won--My daughter! She won 1st place for speed! She won every single heat! She was thrilled and got a really cool trophy. 214.7 avg. mph speed. Her times ranged from 3.003 to 3.0270. I can't express how thankful I am for your guidance and advice. You guys ROCK!
My 8 yr. old didn't actually have to stage her own car. The track was really high and the kids couldn't reach it so an adult was the stager. He postitioned each car straight and carefully looked at the cars. He did a great job and he did the same thing for each car. I never really saw him making sure the wheels were pulled out on the cars. He didn't touch the wheels on anyone's car. My daughter did do a great job of not playing with the wheels and holding it properly when she picked up the car and returned it to the pit. Best part was when she told me later that evening before bed "I prayed that I wouldn't be braggy and greedy if I had my name called for the finals." Love that pure heart moment!
