If you have a school project, then this will probably make you the winner! This can even carry a size 5 soccer ball over 7 feet! This is my entry for the Make it Youth Contest. I hope this helps any other young builders out there. Along the way I learned that cardboard, with the right supports, can be really strong. I also learned that one rubber band will get your pretty far!

Step 1: Parts And Tools!

Parts: cardboard
Wooden wheels
Two rubber bands
Wall picture frame hook
Popsicle sticks
Wooden axles
2 CD's (wheels)

Tools: hot glue gun
Razor blade
somehow, you should add rubberbands to the back wheels for traction
<p>the best thing for CD disc traction is to cut both ends of a ballon then take the center piece and apply to CD </p>
<p>Can you explain how to add the Rubberband? I understand how to add more than one to make the car move, but for this year I'm required to add just one. How would I add it to the back axel and hook?</p>
@whoohoo Never though of that. Good idea!
