A pedal car project makes a great father and son project, or grandfather and grandson project. They are having so much fun, soon the whole family wants to become involved.
What better way to learn how to make things.
It is so much more fun when you invest some time and effort into a project like this,

grandfather has actually made it for him or her.
There is nothing to compare the sense of accomplishment of making something unique that will be treasured forever.
