Monster Truck Car Smashers

If you have a kid that likes cars this one is for you. Ok even if they haven’t pulled out their cars for a while (like mine) they’ll still like this one. My boys played with this for a good 20-30 minutes and they haven’t played with their cars in forver!

All you need are cars, monster trucks or RC car would be cool too, foil, and scissors. We used heavy duty foil because it holds up to more re-forms than the regular.

Cut a piece of foil that will fit nicely around a car without really going under it.

Wrap the car in the small piece of foil making sure to press it into the details if you want a more realistic look.

Line them all up and do your thing!

I swear my brother had some sort of similar toy when he was little but I couldn’t find it online. Think of all the things you could build to crush!

  1. This is awesome! We just went to see monster trucks at monster jam and my son has been talking and wanting to crush cars ever since! perfect timing!

  2. This is brilliant. And I want to say the same about seeing this sort of thing when I was little. But I like your free version!

  3. Love this. I did this with my four year old yesterday and he had so much fun!

  4. this truck is pretty cool . when i was young ,i had no toys to enjoy .I alway tried to do
    anewtoymyself . so if you have no toy , just do it yourself!

  5. Awesome! I remember the toy you're talking about, too, but I can't for the life of me recall the name. When my son got into monster trucks when he was two, I went around to the local vintage toy shops, hobby shops, craft shops, freakin' everywhere looking for it. All of the people I asked, to a one, gave me a blank expression and said some derivative of "Yeah, I have no idea what you are talking about."

  6. This is such a great idea for my boys. Thanks for sharing. We're excited to try this and see how much fun it really is!
