Yogurt pot racing cars

Sometimes I only need to provide a few objects and the children have hours of fun playing. Dreaming up multiple ways to play. Today they had yogurt pots, wheels and guttering. Ok. I did give them the wobbly eyes too! They decided to engineer/craft yogurt pot racing cars. Mixing the bits and pieces, and their imagination.

And so the first official Petits Filous Yogurt Pot race was dreamt up. Every race needs a good course, and its no different for yogurt pot cars. They need a course too.

One end of the guttering was rested on top of the step ladders.

Then the yogurt pot cars ski jumped off the guttering onto the wibbly wobbly wavy slide and down to the finishing line.

Hopefully landing intact and with a little decorum. Between you and me, I don’t think the rules were important. It was more about the team fun.

Once all the yogurt pot racing cars had run the course many times, it was time to stop for a yogurt snack. Strawberry and Vanilla Magic Squares.

Some racing drivers were very keen to join in.

Sometimes words and photos can’t quite capture the fun that three children can have with racing yogurt pots. So I’ve added a video. Only 43 seconds long. Hope you enjoy it.

Not sure where and when the next official race will take place. Hope you can join in too.

      Simple, but they had so much fun. I suspect that they will have this out again and maybe build more on to it. 🙂

    Love the racing car idea, think we may do the same with our empty pots now.
