Last year, Pamela from Tan Family Chronicle shared on her blog how she made this very easy DIY car she fashioned out of empty Yakult bottles and plastic bottle caps. Eh I tell you ah, she is really very precise with the details man! You need to see how she made hers then you will know what I mean. I thought the cars looked really cute and easy to make but I always forget to save my Vitagen bottles.
We were at Pamela's place recently for a play date and she showed us the cars she made. Eh, very cute leh! Fast too! Xan was immediately hooked! Pamela said she still have some materials left and gave me some to kick start the DIY project. Steady! We barely stepped out of her house when Xan insisted we MUST make the cars that very day. Wah lau, the boy kept yakking about it every other minute throughout the 35 min drive home. *faint* However later that night, I managed to convince him we would do it the next day IF he goes to bed early, without a fuss and wake up early the next morning. With a big wide grin and a loud ORH, he had a very quick shower and plonked into bed rather quickly. MIRACLE #1!
MIRACLE #2! He woke up really early but he waited patiently until I opened my eyes. The minute he saw me stir, he kept whispering "Good morning Mummy! Craft time!" *yawn* Ok lor. Leeeet's do it!
Materials you need:
How to do it:
Here is how it will look like when you put the wheels on. So cute!
If you look closely at the bottle, you will see extra holes. I made the 1st set of holes so perfect until the wheels couldn't touch the floor *facepalm*. Never mind. The holes will eventually get covered up in the next step.
Here is the finished product! Not bad for a first attempt eh? Thanks Pamela for the inspiration, the bottles and the bottle caps!
