It is hard coming up with something for a classroom treat for holidays or for a child’s party. My son, Spencer loves taking something for his friends at school.
This treat isn’t healthy but it is easy to make and your kids will love it!
First you will need a glue gun, glue sticks (both I purchased at the dollar store.), mini Hershey chocolate bars, Tootsie rolls, chocolate coins and juice boxes.
You can also change it up. If you want instead of Tootsie Rolls, try a chocolate that is small like one to use for the front fender. You can choose a different small chocolate bar too. The sky is the limit on how you design yours. Choose a juice box that is your child’s favourite.
I found mints in a wrapper didn’t give the same effect as a chocolate coin did for the wheel look. And the Hershey chocolate bar did look like it was a wing with the side flaps of the package.
Figure out how many cars that you wish to make and decide on the amount of items you need. For one car you need one Hershey chocolate bar, one Tootsie roll , four chocolate coins and one juice box.
Just put a dab of glue on each coin and apply it to the juice box sides. Then put glue on the Tootsie roll and place it where the front of the car is located. Lastly put glue on the bottom of the Hershey chocolate bar and place it on the top back area of the race car.
It is that simple. And your kids will love the race cars for themselves and their friends!
Let me know if you make this for your child’s class or birthday parties in the comments below. I love hearing about how the kids enjoyed them.
