Pinewood Derby is an exciting time for Cub Scouts. Add to the fun by making a Pit Pass for each of the boys. They’ll feel like they’re in an actual race!
Many, many thanks to The Idea Door Files for this uber-cool Pinewood Derby Pit Pass! I decided to print these for our Derby contestants, and they were a huge hit! We had several Boy Scouts who helped us with the Derby, and they wanted one too.
I used some lanyards that I had from another project so that the kids could wear them around their necks.
Don’t have a laminating machine? They aren’t too expensive, and I’ve used mine for so many different projects.
Lindsay had a great idea that she shared in a comment. On the backs of the Pit Passes, she printed a chart so that the boys could record their rank, car’s name, and results for each race.
Check out Lindsay’s pin on Pinterest to see what the chart looks like.
Instead of laminating the passes, her pack purchased 4″ x 6″ badge holders for the Pit Passes. That way, the boys can take out their Pit Passes to write the information on the back.
I love Lindsay’s idea! The boys will be able to look back and remember how their Pinewood Derby car’s performance.
What do you do to jazz up your Pinewood Derby?
