Many a father-child project has later caused a now older child to look back with fond memories on the time spent with their fathers. Why not organise a soapbox car challenge with your friends and neighbours?

Find a suitable hill with a safe run off at the bottom (health and safety will be a consideration here). Organise a date with plenty of time for everyone to get ready, and produce invites for the neighbourhood to come and watch.


This activity encourages families to work together on a project. Creates a free community event, as a gift to the local area.


Father/child interaction, community and relationships.
