Lego Challenge Tuesday – Build A Race Car

Source: Lego Challenge Tuesday – Build A Race Car

 

Thank you to Gather Love Grow for another Lego challenge.  Today’s challenge was to make a car and drive it down a ramp.

Our 11 year old made the car that was the fastest, most durable, and drove the furthest.  I guess that isn’t a surprise since he is the oldest.  All of them had problems with the wheels staying on the cars when they drove from the ramp onto the concrete.

We also used a piece of drywall to create a ramp in the house.  That one was for who could drive the furthest.  Unfortunately, none of the pictures of that turn out well.

This challenge was such fun that our 2 year old daughter wanted to get involved.  She didn’t have a car so she grabbed a Lego piece with a Lego flower attached and slid it down the ramp.  Her “car” almost did as well as the cars her brothers made.

I am also going to put a couple of short videos of the cars driving on our Facebook page.
