Pinewood Derby Workshop and Race this Saturday!

Join us Saturday 2/13/10 at the Phoenix First Assembly Children’s Pavilion for a day full of Pinewood derby fun.

Pastor’s School Resources

Here are the Pastor’s School Resources we talked about.  Blessings!

  • Plans for the air cannon
    • One easy option Don’t like their idea for the bicycle valve (we went to a car parts store and bought a tire valve)
    • Video of some guys making one
    • We took the best ideas – visited Home Depot – and patched one together.  We didn’t bother with the wiring because it was going to be a one-time shot…  just unscrewed the solenoid.  We’ll take some pictures for ya or answer any questions after you check out the above.
  • Plans for the paper gun…  we came up with this on our own.  Simple.  (Video soon)
    • Supplies:  Gas leaf blower, Duct tape, 1 wire coat-hanger, 1 jumbo roll of crepe paper (300-500ft)
    • Cut the wire coat-hanger into an 18″ length
    • Put the roll on the wire and bend the wire into a U.
    • Duct tape the wire U onto the end of the leaf blower with the roll of paper hanging in front of the air stream – AND with the unwinding end of the roll closest to the blower.
    • It is helpful to bend the wire up slightly so that the air stream hits the bottom of the roll.
    • Unroll a few feet of the paper and fire up the blower. Mayhem ensues.
  • Plans for the marshmallow shooter
  • List of tools for Digital Rangers
  • Seek & Save 2009 – Taking Rangers to the iPod Generation

If you need something else – or if we can help – please let us know!

Pastor’s School is awesome!

So far, we’ve covered the pastors in army parachute men, puff balls, crepe paper & tiny marshmallows.  What is going to happen next?

Head to church tonight (2/2) for the special presentation and then tomorrow for a praise party you won’t want to miss.
