Walnut Racers

Materials needed:
Walnut shells,
wiggle eyes,

Pry the walnut shells apart carefully. Clean the walnut meat out. Smooth out the surface of the inside
of the shell. Glue the marble inside the shell. If it is a deep shell, you may need to add a foam
piece so that the marble clears the edge of the shell. Decorate the outside of the shell to make
your creature unique. Find or make a slanted surface and race the creatures. The marble inside
the shell allows the racer to slide easily.
