Play For Body And Soul

The Redneck Roadster and Bobsled Team

This is my idea of imaginative play! The boys used an empty (and I hope clean!) rolling garbage can, strapped it to a skateboard they scavenged from the landfill, and used the four-year-old as the engine. The object of the game is to for the boys on bikes to run the roadster off the road. They played at this for several hours!

This time they used the drive way (1/4 mile long VERY steep incline) to power the Roadster. My son strapped the camera to a motorcycle helmet to record the ride.

Who needs toys?
Not my boys!

Believe it or not, I have a similar video! My four guys strapped a cardboard box to a skateboard and repeatedly crashed it at the bottom of a hill. I love the ingenuity of boys!
