Pinewood derby jail

Post by MOFAST » Tue Jan 31, 2012 7:06 am

We stole someone else's idea on here or another site and "arrested" our race winners. I have a couple parent's in our pack that are in law enforcement, when a boy won they would place them in cuffs and escort them to our PWD jail.

We made it using a storage closet and some black/silver streamers. We had them stick their hands through the bars and hold a sign that said arrested for speeding. We also had a sign outside the door that said Pinewood Derby County Jail.

The kids loved it and all wanted a picture inside jail. Keep it Fun!

Ah!
I think I stole that idea from the super timer web pages.
We also had a cop arrest the top racer in our District last year. The cop loved it, and so did the kids.

I love the jail idea!

That sounds like a fun idea. Would have been interesting this year, since our car was the top speeder, and winner of the day.....and our car is a police car. 8)
