The annual Pinewood Derby attracts over a million participants nation-wide. The pinewood derby is intended to be a fun activity that promotes creativity, teamwork, problem solving, and healthy competition. (The key word here is #x1C;healthy#x1D;...) And, as a Dad, Mom, Uncle, Aunt, or Grandparent, It#x19;s also a chance to build memories of time spent with your son, nephew, and grandson as the two of you build a car together. Unfortunately, the pinewood derby, fueled by busy schedules, competitive parents, and social pressures, has morphed from innocent fun and a valuable teaching moment into a multi-million dollar industry of tools, gadgets, and tricks that ignore the true benefits of the activity in favor of one thing: winning. It#x19;s no wonder that participants can be a bit anxious the first-time around. Getting Started in the Pinewood Derby will take the fear out of participating in an inaugural pinewood derby race -- especially if you have no woodworking skills. Unlike any other pinewood book, it#x19;s not about building the most spectacular car, or winning the race; it#x19;s about spending time with a child building something together. It#x19;s about planning the activity so you both have some fun, a few laughs, learn a thing or two about friction and gravity, and walk away with a car you can both be proud of...even if it isn#x19;t perfect. Getting Started in the Pinewood Derby will eliminate any anxiety about the upcoming race because it will remind you that the race is not about the adults, it#x19;s about the kids. And what kid doesn#x19;t want to have fun? In the end, Getting Started in the Pinewood Derby will help kids and adult have a stress-free, good-time building a car that will get down the track. Maybe next year, you can worry about taking home first place.
