    Ladybug Racers

    To make a ladybug racer, you will need: half a walnut shell, paint, a marble, and a smooth board at least 18″ (46 cm) long.

    1. Paint the walnut shell to look like a ladybug, or any other design you like.

    2. Place one end of the board on a few books so that the board is slanted.

    3. Put a marble under the walnut shell and let it roll down the board.

    Make several racers and have contests with your friends or family, or give them as gifts.
