Today we will be having a go at making car wheels using some cardboard and some string/wool/ribbon/cotton/shoe laces. 


First you will need to cut out a circle from a piece of cardboard. I used an old cereal packet; I drew around a plate and cut it out:

Next I used scissors and snipped at intervals all around the plate:
Finally, use your string/ribbon/wool to wind around the circle as shown below. You should now have a fantastic car wheel. You can make more if you want to and add them to a model car. You could make different sized wheels or use different coloured wool/ribbon. Have fun!
