Awana Grand Prix -- Escaping Egypt

Pin It Who knew that you could depict the Parting of the Red Sea as a Grand Prix Car?
See they're leaving the land of pyramids and palm trees and are heading to a land of milk (carton) and honey.

Kid1 used sandpaper to emulate the sandy land.  The water is glitter glue with ocean animal confetti.  Here's a note:  it takes about 2 weeks to dry glitter glue.

Not sure what the kid1 won.  It was definitely a design award.  We never win speed awards.

Awana Grand Prix - Ten Commandments Tablets

Pin It This begins our February series of Awana Grand Prix cars.   There will be a new post every 5 or 6 days!

A joint effort between kid 1 and kid 2.  They won a joint First Place in Design.  Feb 2009
They used textured rock spray paint. 
Commandments I - V is a transparency glued to the block.
Commandments VI - X was written by a kid.  It is not easy to use a Sharpie on textured spray paint.
