Zucchini Race

Make and race a zucchini race car!

They are sleek and low to the ground, which is why a zucchini makes a great race car. Kids can outfit this long, green veggie with wheels and race emblems, then bring it to the Fair on Race Day for the competition. Prizes are given not only for the fastest, but also the best-decorated (and several other categories).

The Fine Print
