Wordless Wednesday – Pinewood Derby 2011 with LINKY

One of the coolest things about Boy Scouts has got the be the Pinewood Derby which happened this past weekend.

As always, I am amazed the creative abilities of these boys. I love the vibrant colors of the cars. The Pinewood Derby cars and designs seem to get better and better every year.

My son's Pinewood Derby car is blue with a bright orange flame running down the front.

      I was in Scouts as a kid and still have great memories. I have two kids in Scouts right now and as soon as the third one is old enough, she is going in too.

      Thanks for stopping by!

  2. I love this post. My husband talks about the pinewood derby and his time in boy scouts all the time. Looking forward to that phase with Evan!

      My dad did the Pinewood Derby as a kid and loved it.

      My husband missed out and swore that he would take his son for as long he wanted to go. They have soooo much fun making the car.

  3. I have always been fascinated with the Pinewood Derby stuff! Such a great activity for boys! I think the shark car is my favorite! 🙂

  51. Eileen

    WOW…its been like a million years since I’ve seen these! My 28 yr old son did scouts but not my 13 yr old. I cant believe how advanced the designs are! I remember the whole engineering mindset to get the weight just right, wheels slick and not sticky…
    the paint jobs are FANTASTIC! Looks like memories in motion!

    One of my fondest memories about my Mom was when she was a pack leader for Scouts (or Den Mother nowdays) There really werent any males to do the job. I still remember their song- 2-4-6-8 who do we appreciate? Pack 48! The soap carving, the lttle cars- it was a houseful of boys!

    Your son looks like he enjoys the scouts!
