2. The distance of a toy car jump
Kids can measure the distance of a toy car jump by setting up a ramp and seeing how far the car travels. This could be a fun way to experiment with physics and learn about distance and speed. Not to mention, kids are their friends could have some healthy competition on who can do the farthest jump!
3. Mom or Dad!
