Race Car Game

This game is simple to make and fun to play. It will also give your kids practice in addition.

Approximate Time 30 minutes



  • cardboard box
  • wrapping, craft or "news" paper
  • cellophane tape
  • marker
  • scissors
  • stickers, decorated and blank
  • toothpicks (optional)
  • small play vehicles


  1. Cover the box with paper. Use tape to secure the paper to the box.
  2. Draw several doorways along one side of the box and cut these out.
  3. Decorate the box with stickers. If you like, you can attach some stickers to toothpicks to make little racing flags and then stick them on the box.
  4. Place a blank sticker above each doorway. Write a different number on each of these. This will be the number of points a player receives if his/her car goes through this doorway.
  5. To play, each player pushes a car toward the box. If their car goes through the doorway, they get that number of points. Each player takes five turns with their car, then adds up their points. The one with the highest number of points after everyone has had their turn is the winner.
