How to make a car from a toilet paper roll

This classy car for my wooden doll, was inspired by Mama Jenn's sports car which is featured (with instructions) on  Preschool Crafts for Kids

To make it even easier for you to make your own car, I've made a video showing you exactly what to do.  You can see it on here.

What you need:
- toilet paper roll
- paint
- scissors
- pen / pencil OR push pin
- 4 bottle caps (equal size)
- hammer and small nail  OR push pin
- a little bit of playdough
- optional:  a drinking straw OR piece of cardboard & glue

Step One:  paint roll and leave to dry
Step Two:  cut square for driver, and poke 4 holes where the wheels need to go
Step Three:  (optional: put two straws in through the two sets of holes respectively), insert toothpicks
Step Four: make holes in the caps and attach them onto the toothpicks, using playdough to secure them.

Now that you have such a cool car, need somewhere to park it...
