Bargain Store Project #36 Paint Tray Rubberband or Mousetrap Car


Bought two items from the bargain store. A set of wooden kitchen utensils (see #37 next) and a small paint roller set. In this episode I use the plastic tray from the paint roller set to make a rubber band powered car and then convert it to a mousetrap car, so you get two cars for the price of one. In #37 I will do the same sort of thing with the kitchen utensils.

Remember, these bargain stores also sell plenty of toys for £1 or less so the project is not about making a cheap toy. It is about taking something and 'hacking' or 'repurposing' it to do something other than what it was designed to do. I am using bargain store products to limit my initial outlay.

Generally my projects are for my grandchildren to enjoy. OK, I enjoy them too. If anybody else likes them, that is a bonus. I like to keep my work as simple and basic as possible so that it can be copied easily and improved by anybody who wants to try themselves. I recycle or repurpose items rather than buy new and when I do buy I like to keep it cheap.
