Here are the trophies that we made for the boys this year. I think they turned out so fun! Derrick cut up a 2×4, painted and painted each block blue.
I added the vinyl, and then he added a little rubber duck to each one. To attach the rubber duck (from Oriental Trading) he attached a screw to each block and popped it into the bottom of the duck. We origionally tried hot glue, but it wouldn’t stick to the rubber.
Simple and very inexpensive.
They both did great at the derby and had a fun time racing with their friends.
