Kids love candy and many also love the Indianapolis 500, just like their parents. There is not better way to entertain the kids at your Indianapolis 500 party than by combining the two into a fun craft project. Get your little guests into making a candy race car!
Candy Race Car
For this fun craft project you'll need the following items; Low temp hot glue gun, Ribbons or yarn for hanging, 1 large package of gum, 4 round wrapped candies, 1 shiny wrapped candy, and 2 mini chocolate bars.
Once you've completed the candy race car for the Indianapolis `500 party you'll be able to keep it as an ornament, play with it or eat it. Just make sure that if you plan on eating these candy race cars, you don't apply to any part of the actual candy, just on the outer wrappers.
Begin your Indianapolis 500 craft car by gluing the shiny wrapped candy to the front of the gum pack. This will serve as a bumper for your race car. Wrap any extra candy wrapping around the edges of the gum pack to serve as the sides of the bumper. Next you'll glue on the four round candies to serve as wheels for your Indianapolis 500 racecar. Then, glue one mini candy bar to the back half of the car. Placing this mini candy bar so that it sticks off the back of the gum package by ¼ of an inch.
Finally you'll glue the other mini candy bar so that it lays perpendicular to and on top of the first mini candy bar you glued onto the big gum pack. Make sure that at least half of this second candy bar extends past the edge of the first candy bar.
This will create the spoiler of your Indianapolis 500 race car and completes your party craft project. For extra safety, make sure an adult handles the glue gun.
