Race through your card making like Solomon Hauser, a 5-year-old automobile enthusiast from Perry, New York, who made these tracks with paint-dipped toy cars. The "coupe" de grace on his card? A sweet chocolate car, available at party and candy stores and through online retailers such as CandyWarehouse (candywarehouse.com).

What you'll need

  • Newspaper
  • Pencil
  • Ruler
  • Red card stock (each 8 1/2- by 11-inch sheet makes 4 cards)
  • Black acrylic paint
  • Paper plate
  • Toy truck with textured wheels
  • Scissors
  • Marker
  • Foil-covered chocolate cars
  • Double-sided tape

How to make it

  1. Cover your work area with newspaper. Use the pencil and the ruler to divide the card stock into 4 equal sections.

  2. Pour some black paint onto the paper plate. Drive the toy truck through the paint a few times to coat the wheels well.

  3. Wheel Fun - Step 3

    Roll the truck over the card stock to make tracks, taking care to leave some room in each section for a message.

  4. Let the paint dry, then cut the card stock into 4 pieces and use the marker to write a note on each one.

  5. Attach the chocolate cars with the double-sided tape.
