Pinewood Derby with My Pink Stamper

Happy Wednesday Everyone!!!

Do you all know what a Pinewood Derby is??  Neither did I before I had little boys!  It's one night a year where the little Cub Scouts get together and race cars that they've made out of a block of wood.  I also was able to participate this year, too, with the leaders!  Can you guess what color my car was??  Yep!  Pink with Sparkles!!  LOL!!  Here are some of the different goodies I made for the grand event.  You can watch the video below if you would like to see how I made the trophies.  I got the idea from Pinterest.

I made these fun candy cars for all the boys who participated.  I found the idea HERE on Pinterest!

We decided to have the den leaders race with the boys so I got to make my own car, too!  Of course it was pink!  What did you expect?  I spray painted it, used Stickles on the front, and used Gem Tack to add the bling to the side.  The flower on the top was "borrowed" from a card that my designer, Edna, sent me for my birthday.  It will be going back on the card very soon!  LOL!!



Have a great day!!  Karlee will be here in 2 1/2 weeks!!  We moved up her date a couple of weeks and I cannot wait!

I love your car!!! My hubby made Cub Cars last night with his pack! He is Akela for the second year & will be his last. In our city we even have a soap box derby, the first weekend in May. The boys always look forward to it. I think these little treat cars would be a perfect addition to such a fun day!!! Thanks for the post Robyn!!!

What a great project. Bet the boys loved the trophies and the candy car treats. How did the pretty pink stamper car do?

rlang221 said...

I'm sure the cub scouts will love them. When my boy were that are they ran in many pinewood derbys and they would have just loved those awards. Both my boys are Eagle Scouts and I've very proud of them.

Keep up the great work!!!

What fun you are having. My son was a cub scout and his fave part was the Pinewood Derby. So much tension for 1 little boy though. Glad you are having fun with it.

Raine said...

We don't have things like this in the UK, although i have enough boys to have a race at home. lol

Lots of choices, wonderful values and many [URL=http://www.nfoutletonline.net/#1014]north face outlet locations[/URL] excellent brands from which to choose... Mom could pick the excellent backpack for each kid in a heartbeat, but then again, I'm not 'cool' any more and the backpack would probably take a seat inside the closet. [URL=http://www.nfoutletonline.net/#1151]north face outlet store[/URL] I'm going to just give the little ones my own credit card and hope to the best.
