It's a Potato AND a Car!

When's the last time you had fun with a potato?
These kids rocked that fave food from Idaho on Wednesday, by making Potato Derby cars to race!

Speed Tater. (One of the top contenders for first. Finished around third overall.)
The Studly Spud. Unique, but slower than heck. (Unless it was thrown.)



Join the hottest trend in racing...

A new.. "spin" on hot potato.

Whose idea was that? I bet the boys loved it! Mmmm .. raw potato! My car would've been the smallest in the race.

So DID he throw it?? Because that would be AWESOME you know...

Love the idea. I'm pretty sure our crazy scout leader would eat that one UP! Ha! I am so lame when it comes to jokes in the A.M.!

How cool is that...why did you peel the potatoes? Do they go faster? :)

Wow! That is neat. I bet they had a blast.. Fun.

That's the coolest idea ever!!! I love it! I should make those for Kya and Brennon as they love playing with cars. The bonus is we could eat the cars for dinner. LOL, now that would be gross!

I've seen pinewood derbies and raingutter regattas, but I've never seen a potato derby. That's cool.
