Kiddie Craft: Dude, Where's My Car?


A couple of weeks ago on a beautiful Sunday afternoon The Doctor started painting a box. Not just an ordinary box. A car-box.
While we were soaking up all that Springtime goodness, The Doctor painted like a crazy man-child.

The end results were this totally awesome car. We pimped his ride with the following accessories:

- rear vision mirror fashioned from foil and pipe cleaner for maximum flexibility
- steering wheel on a pipe cleaner to allow for power steering
- tail lights - patty cake pans
- head lights - tin pie cases
- an exhaust - a toilet roll
- mag wheels - created from coloured in newspaper circles
- windscreen wipers - pipe cleaners and cardboard

But I've just realised the little dude has been driving around for the last few weeks with no number plates. Sheesh! Lucky I realised before he got pulled over by the kiddie-craft police.

Fab! But how does one so young afford the price of petrol these days?

That is awesome!

But with that new paint job and lack of plates, I'd be thinking that is a hot box-car.

Hehum, Kiddie-craft police here, just wanting to make an inquery as to the location of the seat belt!! and the radio of course, because what is the use of having a hot ride for the chicks if you don't have the show tunes.

Ooh, it's a European-style cabriolet! Or is that craftiolet?

Oh this looks great. I made that with my little man last year and he played with it every day for about a month...until it fell apart.
Love it!
