This activity introduces kids to the concept of design by drawing their dream car! The best thing? There are no limits to their creativity! Why have car seats when you can have sofas? How about a jacuzzi on the roof? It’s all possible!
Top tip!For young children, draw the car’s outline for them as a colouring activity. Encourage older children to think about the scientific modifications they might add to the car, like thicker tyres or spoilers!

About the activity
Start by drawing the outline of the car. Think about how tall the roof is going to be and how many windows, doors and wheels it will have. Encourage kids to add some custom-made gadgets –– how about fold out wings or a rocket engine that can reach supersonic speeds?
Don’t forget to add colour and label any key features the car might include, like a secret fridge or ejector seats!
Why stop at one car? Try designing a car for a special occasion or for someone famous, too!
