Summer time means harkening back to the simpler things in life: sleeping in, unplanned afternoons and fun that can be had with as few props as possible. Today’s idea for fresh & simple summer fun is is to take products commonly found in your home to reinvent a new toy.

Today, we are building a car with only 4 supplies. Here’s what you’ll need.

  • 2 Skewers
  • 4 Bottle caps
  • A Drill
  • An empty container, like a cream cheese container

Step 1: Drill holes in the container and the bottle caps.

Step 2: Insert skewers.

Step 3: Add bottle caps as wheels and decorate.

Step 4: Vroom vroom!
