Fun with cars!

 

If you have toy cars and some spare old toothbrushes, you could create your own car wash using some washing up liquid and a bowl of water.

 

If you have some cardboard, you could create two ramps to race your cars. 

Whose car travelled the fastest?  How do you know?  What could you use to measure the distance?
