Indonesian Toy Car

Toy Car

Jeruk bali is a fruit from Indonesia with a thick skin. (The fruit is also known as a pomelo.) In times past, Indonesian children made cars out of the skin of the fruit. They cut wheels and car shapes out of the skin and attached the wheels with small strong sticks about the thickness of toothpicks. A long stick attached to the back or a string tied to the front allowed the child to push or pull the car.

Try making a toy car like the ones in the photo out of the skin of an orange or honeydew melon and toothpicks. (A lime was used for the “driver.”)

Pray that all Indonesian children will learn that Jesus loves them.
