That is so cool, I want one for me, oh and I guess I would let my daughter play too
It definitely wasn't only the kids playing. The only problem is that if you are not kid sized you'll have to bend down quit a bit.

They are stunning! And what a great way to add a pop of color to the grey weather!

Amazing!
It looks like a lot of fun.
The camera tripod head is such a neat idea!

The only one who complained about it was my dad. But I think that was because the kids allways beat him.
I saw something similar a while back and didn't know how to construct the moving parts. I got the idea of using the tripod head when I was playing with my husbands tripod that while watching TV. It took some time to find a sturdy one. Most tripod heads are made for small cameras or slow movement, but this one works great so far.

Thank you! I had a lot of fun building it and the kids loved it. But I missed some of the party because I was so tired from crafting all night Wink

Hi everyone,

I like to share with you my latest woodworking project. It's a speedway for matchbox cars.


The racetrack was cut into a sheet of plywood and then glued on top of another one.

You can steer the cars using the two handles to tilt the track.


it's mounted on a camera tripod swivel head:


I made it for my little ones birthday party and it was a great success.

Hope you like it.

Great idea! I love it.

You should definitely watch the Sarah Jane Adventures, too. I know it's a kids' show but it's really fun and it does a great job conecting the old and the new series.

This is the machine I got for the kids. It's tiny and lightweight and easy to use, but I don't believe it's available outside Germany.

Ikea has a nice one, too. Same price range, but a little larger and heavier and some extra stitches.
There is a good review of that one on ikatbag.

That's great! how old is he?
 
If he plans to do an other one let him use the sewing machine. My son made aprons for several family members last Christmas and I pinned the fabric with safety pins and drew clearly visible sewing lines on the fabric. 
He had a blast using the machine. I did help guiding the fabric occasionally but most of the time he managed to sew close to the line. Just make sure he's not tired and stays focused. 
My boy gets easily distracted by technical stuff and it's better to use a really simple sewing machine. Otherwise he tries to figure out what the different buttons do while he's sewing.
