Construct a Fruit Car!
Going to the local toy store isn't the norm for most around the world. In many countries, children and adults simply use naturally gathered materials to create toys. For example, in Haiti, one popular tradition involves using seasonal fruits to build toy vehicles. Show your little engineer how to make her very own fruit car with this cost effective and environmentally-friendly activity! Whether you find the materials from a neighbor's fruit tree (with permission, of course!), or a stall at the local farmers' market, choosing fruits to invent unique toys is half the fun of this project.
