I realized that I never posted the Pinewood Derby last year, so I thought I would post a little of both years.
We basically used a checkerboard theme for our derby. We were able to find a few things at the dollar store and the rest of the stuff I made.
We hung a few flags on the doors coming into the gym. These larger flags were found at the dollar store.
Around the track, we set up a barricade. We didn't want the kids getting near the track. We got small cones. We actually taped them to the ground. Then, we taped the flags all along the track. To make them, I just found a checkerboard clipart and made b/w copies on cardstock.
We used a few of them on the food table along with the larger banner from the dollar store.
...Then the placed them on the checked-in table. On this table, I had black paper plates to put their cars on.
I also had a name card for the boys to write the name of their car.
Then, the races began....
I hope you find some of this stuff helpful. Everything I made was in Photoshop Elements, please feel free to email me if you would like any of the files. anisascholes at gmail dot com
