The Pinewood Derby consisted of Cynthia, Lydia, Isaiah, Micah, Noah and (for the first year) Tabitha.

Cynthia made a Thanksgiving table and made the Turkey out of play dough and glued it to a piece of cloth. Then she glued it to her car and painted the car brown.

Lydia made just an ordinary car and painted it silver. She drilled one hole all the way through her car to go for speed (not most creative).

Isaiah made a Viking ship. He made a paddle boat at first then he made a circle and put it on top. He painted that part brown. Then he cut a metal sheet and put triangles of the metal on the top of the boat and put five bolts on each side for shields.

Micah made a torpedo. First he made a pencil shape. Then he made two triangles of wood and glued them to the sides diagonally. Then he made one strait piece and put it in between the other pieces and painted it silver.

Noah made an ordinary race car and painted it gold and painted the front silver.

Tabitha (it is her first year in Sparks and her first year in Pinewood Derby) made a teddy bear. She drew it on her wood and cut it and painted it brown. Then she painted it eyes, a nose, and a mouth.

At Awana Pinewood Derby Night

The first person to race their (in our family) was Lydia. She had the ordinary car but it was fast. She got 2nd place two inches from the winner and three feet away from the two other cars.

The next person to race was Cynthia. She had the turkey dinner car. She thought her car was going to be the slowest car but the most creative, but she won first place on a practice round!

The next person to race was Isaiah, Micah, Noah, and Tabitha all at once. Tabitha won 1 st place. Isaiah got 2nd place Noah got 3 rd place Micah got 4 th place. After it was over we listened to the awards. Cynthia won 3rd place in speed and 1st place in most creative. Lydia didn’t win a trophy but she won a ribbon saying that she was there. Isaiah won 3rd place in creative (he had the cool ship). Micah didn’t win a trophy but he had the time of his life and got a ribbon. Noah got a ribbon and had the time of his life watching Tabitha’s car. Tabitha won 1st place in speed and had a blast running to get her car.
