Se7en All Terrain Vehicles in a Matchbox…

July 10th, 2009 · 9 Comments

We are getting ready for a virtual traveling event of note… We will be needing maps and passports, baggage and a whole heap of paraphernalia… But possibly the most important thing we will be needing is an all-terrain vehicle.

We started with a brainstorm session:

  • Would it need huge wheels for clambering over obstacles?
  • Would it need wheels or sails?
  • Would it need to fly or float?
  • What sort of storage will it need?
  • What about aerials and satellites?
  • What sort of fuel would it use?
  • What would it need for traveling at night?

Let’s Meet The Players:

  • matchboxes
  • cut off pipe-cleaners
  • colored toothpicks
  • tin foil
  • bottle caps
  • cardboard off-cuts
  • copious amounts of white glue
  • tik tak (prestick)

And Play The Game:

This was a totally “free-to-be” project, no steps, no guidance – just fun.

Two hours of sticking and copious gluing and nattering away and se7en vehicles were done!

You would think that I used my time fruitfully and got two hours worth of housework done… but actually I spent my time far more wisely and spent two hours alongside them making my own vehicle!!!
