To make this mouse trap car you will need 4 discs, tape, 2 pens, some string, 4 hooks, and a mouse trap.

Step 1:

First take the tape and wrap it around the edge of all discs to create better traction.

Step 2:

Next take the hooks and put two of the hooks in the front and the back of the mouse trap.

Step 3:

Next tie one end of the string to the center of the pen and the other end to the hammer of the mouse trap.

Step 4:

Then take the tape again and wrap it around the ends of both of the pens, then put the discs on the ends of the pens.

Step 5:

Finally take the mouse trap and attach the hooks in the front and back of the mouse trap and attach it to the two pens.

Step 6:

This next step is optional you can add an arm to the hammer of the mouse trap by using a long piece of plastic and attaching it with some tape.

    You might also have luck using an inflatable balloon around the wheels. It would be a little lighter, and would be less cushy, therefore losing less to friction.

    I like the addition of the electric tape for traction. Such a great idea!
